A couple of weeks ago I bought this fabulous black and white floral rayon print with the intention of making Butterick's 1940s wrap dress (for next years Ladies' Tipsy Tea), and that's exactly what I did (minus the shoulder pads - I still need to sew those in).
Last night, I threw the dress on my dummy and it looked super. Then, I threw the dress on me, and I'm not sure it looks so good - lol! The dress fits well and it is comfortable, but there is a lot of print in that fabric and I'm afraid I've disappeared behind it (Where's Angie?). And, trying to get a flattering picture from the starkness of a digital photograph was quite challenging (I'm still not sure I succeeded here).
Anyway, what do you think? Is this a case of a retro redo? Same dress, another fabric?
Blessings and happy sewing!
