Dress #14 -- Butterick P289 (2016)

I knew before I started this that is wasn't going to be boob-friendly and I knew I would never wear it -- but I had the perfect amount of this fabric left over and went for it anyway! It looks good on my dummy, not so much on me. It wasn't a difficult pattern to put together, but here are some of the things I don't like about it: 1. No boob support. I wear 36D bra. I wear TWO bras daily and I sleep in them. I like my puppies SUPPORTED. That means, strapless bras are useless and uncomfortable to me. 2. The side tie makes my waist look thick. It's bulk I don't like. 3. It's not really wearable/practical for me. I knew this making it. It's just a "fun" garment! It's not a bad pattern, just didn't work for me. Oh well!

Dress #13 -- Hollywood 564 (1941)

Back to the sewing board! I made a slip to start. I didn't really put a lot of effort into it because it was something I NEEDED. New place is coming along and I'm already sewing two things!
