This is definitely a different silhouette for me - but every once in a while, I feel like I need to try something new.
This was one of those projects.
And while I was concerned that this particular creative endeavor was going to be a fail at the half-way point, I am glad that I powered through. Because I really enjoyed wearing the dress!
Sure, I had a snarky comment from my boss, but that was to be expected. He rags on my clothing choices, and I raise my eyebrow at his.
Surprisingly enough, I had quite a few positive comments from strangers, most of whom were male. Perhaps they thought I was with child and were afraid to ask?
I am going to end up calling this one a success. Phew! I really did not want to have to scrap this fabric!
There is a distinct possibility that I will make that wool version to be a match back to my original inspiration. That may not happen anytime soon, but the Trapeze silhouette is beginning to grow on me!
