New Look 6735
New Look 6735 with elbow length sleeves. I finished it in the weekend. I bought the fabric at Morelands Fabric in Nelson and I really like it. Actually, I wish I'd bought enough to make a tiramisu dress with it. Today I wore it for the first time and I'm pleased with it. Obviously, if I'd been to the hairdresser at all this year, I wouldn't look exactly like this. But this look is pretty typical and I'm not about to wait until I have the perfect look and location and photographer (I took tonight's photos by holding the camera in front of me) just to put a record of my sewing on my blog.
I wore it with a long black skirt and a belt today. Without the belt, the length focused the eye on my hips, which I didn't find visually pleasing.
