I finished Dress with Front Tuck and realized an alteration was in order. The dress is cute and summery and went together in a few hours – not bad. Who knows how much time we have until Doomsday arrives?
But it also makes me look like I am pregnant. If I were pregnant, this would be a win-win – a cute summery dress for big-bellied me. But since I am not, I am not loving the dress so much. A little belt was in order.
I had some grosgrain ribbon lying around that just happened to match. And I had a buckle from a vest project lying around. Voila! A belt! (Again, the Japanese Hippie Doomsday Cult member is nothing if not resourceful.)
I also put in shoulder darts to stop the gapping at the neck and I made all the seams French seams because of the lightweight fabric. All ready to wear.
I think I will tackle some pants next – something comfy and durable for those long hours toiling on the cult farm or canvassing the airport for converts.
