All It Takes is a Ruffle
my favorite. I tried branching out from "my" dress and made this Cynthia Rowley dress, which is totally cute, but eventually proved too short to be functional for my life. (This is what I get for branching out!) I need to be able to bend over at the waist and swing a leg over my bicycle without worrying about being indecent or its just not practical. Even immediately after making it I knew, deep down, it was too short for me. I mean, the hem fell above my knee and all, but I figured I could make do with leggings or something. In the end though, I just never wore it. It was just too short. It hung, abandoned, in the closet having been worn just a couple times since completion. I considered donating it, but am so hesitant to do that with my me-made clothes, labors of love and so unique as they are.
