New York, New Yo...
my husband HATES this outfit… doesn’t hug nearly enough curves for his liking. i suppose i am flattered. i think it’s sorta nifty. it was supposed to have ties down the front, but i decided to use pseudo-buttons (meaning: i do not have a button hole attachment, those buttons have snaps underneath that curtain!) i do need advice on the back… where i can see what he means about my curves. i don’t have quite that much junk in the trunk… the legs go straight down from the waist, which is supposed to be encased in elastic. should i add the elastic? will that help my cause? or should i add darts or tucks and use my $2 pink belt to cinch the waist?
$1 fabric at joanns… hopefully it’s cotton. i THINK it is.
i made this after seeing the project runway episode where they did the “out of fashion” challenge… the teeny designer with black curly hair (name?) was wearing a denim jumper and i wanted one immediately. she was also doing a jumper, as apparently, they are out of fashion.
