Things got away from me a little bit. Mainly because I signed up for an online HTML/CSS class at the local junior college. It’s an 8 week class pushed into 4 weeks. Two homework projects per week with lots of work made for a cranky stew. BUT, it’s over so yay! There are two more classes in the series, but I shan’t be taking the accelerated version again. Too crazypants.
At the same time I had to study for my yearly FAA exams so I could continue to work. Yes, I passed so I can work like a dog for the rest of the summer.
I had hope to show you a completed dress (Burda 03-2013-131) made from some lovely rayon challis I picked up at Britex. It’s lovely fabric and I’d imagined a breezy summer dress. The dress style makes it hard to fit as you go, so I just went on faith. You guess it, it doesn’t fit. The cups of the bodice are too small – they’re about a B cup and I am so much farther down that alphabet chain. It looks silly. Also the neckline is a deeeeeeep plunge so the shelf created by my boobs is clearly visible to all and sundry. Then the underbust portion is also too big and needs to be taken in. I shall try to make these alterations easily and if that doesn’t work, I’m cutting off the top and having a flowy rayon challis skirt.
The photo on me was too awful for public consumption, so please make do with the heap of dress on my ironing board awaiting adjustment.
