I think this dress is my all time favourite summer dress.
Plenty of room for the chesticles. (newest favourite word from Skye)
You might be wondering what is the fail part of this dress? The bottom 4 inches of this dress are different from the rest. When I got the dress 2 years ago from Ruche I decided it was much too long and matronly for my tastes. Why waste a bunch of money getting it taken up by a professional tailor when I had my own trusty sewing machine?
The dress is made out of a very light-as-a-feather soft cotton. Perfect for tearing. I'd always been told, if you rip cotton it will rip straight. So…I measured where I wanted the dress to come up to and then proceeded to tear it. Everyone of you that knows a little bit about sewing is shaking your head in disgust with me right about now. A full circle skirt is cut on the bias which means on an angle which means when you go to rip it, it will rip on an angle. About 4 inches shorter than you had planned. When it was all over I was holding half of my shredded dress in my hands.
I had made myself a skating skirt. When the slightest breeze came along I felt it everywhere which although refreshing and quite liberating was not very sanitary. I felt like I needed to carry a towel with me just so I could sit comfortably. Like what they do at nudie resorts so I'm told.
I finally fixed the faux pas. It's not ideal but it is better than feeling like you forgot to put on pants. Don't you hate those dreams?
