it all started with this plaid jersey fabric
i got it from local store
and started making a dress
(using some burda pattern)
at some point i tried it on
and realized it just looks crappy on me
it was one of those baggy dresses
for tall skinny girls
since im not skinny nor too tall
i looked like a balloon in it
so i stopped my sewing project
and buried the fabric
at the very bottom of my fabric stash
found it some months later
and made a dress out of it
(no pattern used this time)
but it was way too short
so it had to wait again
until i find right fabric to adjust the hem line
and make it longer
and i find this jersey with big black dots
works for me :)
