The Blues Got Me

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I've made the Hope Wrap dress before. I haven't had time to get a picture of it because it's been sitting in the back of my closet. I haven't worn it since I finished it in, oh March? The dark blue color makes me think it's more of a fall/winter/early spring deal. Although, I tend to ignore what I should wear in what season, so this might make an appearance sometime this summer if it gets cool enough.

I think this dress turned out a bit better than my white one. There isn't as much problem in my chest area, I still chose to wear a cami under it though. I can't get away with not wearing one at work or church. This fabric was something I found on clearance, and of course I have extra. And this time the hem isn't as horrid! If I fiddled with the back of the dress it would hang straight, but I don't have a full length mirror in my room so I just threw the dress on to get a picture not thinking about the back of it.
Speaking of backs of dresses... A little amusement from my work. I had to work in the dress department of the store that I am employed in, not too odd. But a lady came up to return a dress I had just sold to her because "the back of the dress was longer in the back." My knee jerk reaction was noooo, reaallly?? You don't have a butt to cover? And then I realized the back of the dress was about 4 inches longer than the front, to which the lady responded she couldn't be bothered to hem the dress... At least my work keeps my entertained.

  1. Silly people at work. Ugh. I do like this dress though I slightly prefer the white one's pattern to this one, though I do believe this dress does look a little better. Interesting trade off...both do look nice though.
