Remember the grey and green dress (that also was my very first post here on this blog)?
Yeah, it’s not grey and green anymore. I mentioned a couple of things that were a bit wonky with the dress already back then, like me having chosen the wrong size for the yoke (too small), and that I should have used interfacing. The dress didn’t exactly look bad, but there were some things that just weren’t quite right. Since the yoke wasn’t very stiff, and it was a size or two too small, it sagged and pulled to the side, making a not-so-flattering gap where the upper edge fell away from my body. Hmm. Also, the sleeves were quite tight, which made the dress just a tad unpractical to wear. Lastly, and I guess, most importantly – I could never get that green color to work with anything. I do love that color, but being so bright, and in pretty stark contrast to the grey, I found it hard to pair it with pretty much anything else in my wardrobe.
Off to market, ehm, the cobbler to pick up my shoes. The ones on my feet are from Sally-Jane Vintage.
So, here is an “after” of sorts. I replaced the green fabric with a brown/blue floral patterned fabric – it’s giving me a bit of a House on the Prairie-vibe! It blends more with the grey fabric, which I think is a good thing – it will be much easier to wear with all my other clothes now!
