And with my apologies to Jonathan Safran Foer for that title, here is the plaid dress I worked on last week:
I think I just had too much exposure to it, because I should love it–it’s red and pink at the same time and it’s the puffiest party dress I’ve worn since I was about nine. I’m just disappointed that the fit is off, because I made a practice bodice out of muslin and a bodice lining before I actually did the bodice out of the silk, and the waist still came out too big. And it was kind of a lot of work for a one-event dress.
But maybe I can wear it again to the Nutcracker. Hell, I could be in the Nutcracker in this.
