There is something in the air in Queensland. I have just read Bloom's Fabric obsession's post, about her fabulous fuschia skirt, and Raindrops and Belly flops' post, displaying her lovely cowl neck t shirt, and had to write about my otherwise uninspiring and un-post-worthy t shirt - fuschia and a cowl neck. SNAP!
Unfortunately, I am rather unhappy about this project.
It is a refashion, of a silk jersey dress which I had worn only twice - too bright and shiny for me. The fabric was an internet surprize colour.
The top pattern is Vogue 8634 again, and is much more loose in silk jersey than in my merino or cotton/lycra versions. It is also rather unflattering. However, I am blaming the colour, not the pattern, as I like the earlier versions. I am not sure how it looks on your monitor (to me it is rather more pink in real life than it appears on my screen), but when I wore this into the living room for family display, my 17 year old daughter asked me about the scars on my face - which have been present since a bicycling accident in 1993, and she had never noticed previously. Hmmm, maybe this is not a colour that enhances my complexion....
Sometimes a dress you don't wear should be passed on, not cut up to make yet another thing that won't be worn. I guess you can't win every time!
