And here's my yellow completed dress again - I don't really like this dress:
I wore it yesterday and loved the fit. I also loved the swishiness of the skirt. So I had to conclude that I am crazy about the style and the pattern! That left the fabric. I kept looking at the dress and realized that the fabric is too busy and colorful for my style sensibilities. Not to mention that I am not crazy about the color brown. Everywhere the little hula girl appears is the color brown, because that's the color of her hair. There are a lot of hula girls on this, which means there's a lot of brown! There are also a lot of other colors on this. And a lot of little figures. It's just TOO much for me. If it were up to me, this dress would not be a regular in my wardrobe - I really can't stand looking at the fabric. But because I loved the fit of this dress, and because my other half is a big fan of this dress, I am keeping it. But I am also going to make it one more time with a more toned down print. Since I am on a yellow kick right now, I'm sewing this dress with this fabric - yellow runs through it. I'm sewing it exactly like the yellow one, even down to the ribbon trim:
Hopefully, I'll have this done very soon because I want to get started on another top, in yellow, that I have been obsessing about.
