NO RHYME OR REASON DRESS

Do you ever want to make something , just because? This style may not necessarily suit my figure or age bracket lol! but it’s a fun little dress & well what can I say I’ve reached that age if I like it then oh well ! lol! If there’s red involved in the fabric then there really doesn’t have to be any rhymed or reason “I love red” & there’s just enough black to give the illusion of slimness right? lol!

I’m linking up to Rachel’s flicker group for selfish sewing week

looks good on he dress form lol! I tried it on & it fits but shorter than  I care to wear, guess if it looks like a mini dress on the pattern cover than it will be short, lesson learned lol! as thoughts of the word toss went through my mind, a friend suggested buying some leggings & assured me it would be cute cute cute, well I don’t know about that ,lol! I am going to the Zoo with my youngest daughter & grandson tomorrow, do I dare? lol!

The dress looks great - pity you feel it is a tad too short. The leggings idea is a good one, or else, could you add a band of fabric to the bottom in a colour blocking kind of way - it's also in fashion ... J

Judith has the same idea as me - add a band at the bottom if the leggings look is not you :)

Leggings would be cute as well as adding a little warmth if the temps cool off. You did a great job sewing. I like the colors and think it looks rather nice on a pretty dress.

I was thinking exactly the same thing!! I just bought skinny black pants and a tunic length top and it looks great! I thought I was to old and to short (5'3) but it was perfect! The colors in your tunic would look great with skinny pants or leggings!
