The part of Mr. Thinks He Can will be played by Ryan Gosling.
True story. That also explains the glasses and general disorient going on with these shots.
I really like how the Peony went together. It was a quick dress to make, and yielded nice results. I did make a muslin of the bodice, and that helped. Had I not I don't think it would have worked out at all. I let out the front waist darts a bit and took in and lengthened the top back darts quite a lot. I plan on making the cummerbund for this pattern in black fabric or maybe hot pink to match my zipper.
See the pull there at the top? I do mean it is hot pink! I also have my hands in my pockets for that picture.
I used some of the left over print from Brindy's quilt with squirrels running up trees. You can't see them, but I like knowing they are there.
Overall I am pleased with my new dress. It went together very quickly and I plan on making it again. I would like a V-neck version I think as well.
Check out the dress Holly made, and I mostly watched her make yesterday. She did a fantastic job on this Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity 2178 dress. It was a doozie because of the tie at the shoulder, but I believe we liked the results so much we both want to make another one. It should go faster this time. She also made the awesome curtains she is standing in front of as well. She is so accomplished like that.
