why do I try?

Today I went to Rosie's, the best fabric store I have found in San Diego, to buy some thread. I always look at the sale fabric and found a nice striped one, so I bought some to make a skirt. The last time I tried to make a dress for myself it was a disaster, I don't know why I tried to make something for myself again. I was inspired by this post from Childhood Flames. I know she is a teen and probably a size -2 but I thought it might be cute on. I chose to ignore the little person that was whispering in my ear "Hello Natalie you are 30 years old and have had two children, elastic waisted skirts will not look good on you". It was a disaster, but Liesl put it on and thought it was a princess dress. I don't know if I should cut it and make it a skirt for Liesl or take it apart and make her a dress out of it?

  1. omg, I love it on liesl! you could easily just make two wide strips of fabric for straps and attach them to the "bodice" with giant buttons. or lack of bodice.

    or you could make little cap sleeps and embrace it's mu-mu-ness.
