Just a few more photos of “the dress” , ie New Look 6000, in daylight, & before I launch the “gallery” proper later today. (And blog button, woo hoo!! watch this space). Let’s get my silliness out of the way shall we? You can see that I had the benefits of my crazeee photographer. Apparently he is just so creative, that even in 5 minutes shooting snaps of some bint looking a bit mad, he needs to push the boundaries …..I blame him. Totally. For the more bizarre ones that is. Starting relatively somberly & sensibly …
Yes it is a wig! I can’t believe how polite everyone was last time!
Anyway, lengthwise I wanted this to hit the knee, being more of a demure dress.
Here are the cuffs – darling aren’t they? I sewed the button (plastic homage to marcasite!) through all thicknesses of the cuff, although as you’ll see in the gallery post, or already on her website, Jane sewed 2 buttons, one each side & they look super cute.
The good news? I’m still sitting in the frock now, very badly postured with laptop on knee & the ease in the upper back seems to be OK. (I was concerned about it). No too sure I like what is happening to the hem though. If only I’d not seen that, I’d be so much happier! I think it’s where the hem to underlining is pulling a bit. A whack of the iron & I’ll see if that’ll fix it.
Onto some self indulgent silliness now.
To explain this shot- whilst it shows the collar a little, photographer was in the “air stewardess” zone & asked for a “the plane’s going to crash!” pose. Hmm. Fat lot of use I’d be in a crisis! But the collar – another interesting thing about this pattern, it’s not interfaced – but being cut on the bias that’ll be why.
And which zone you ask are we in here? The tropics perhaps? Well the cat’s thinking otherwise … I’m sure it was the “Twilight Zone” …..
(And yes, I have tortured him with a “Scooby Doo cover for the sofa he is so intent on covering with fur, twigs, more fur and matted chunks of fur).
So anyone wanting to send me photos or links for the big round up post later, please do. Im at
Look forward to hearing from you 🙂
By the way, New Look 6000 “Frock Fest” has absolutely no requirement to be silly or immature in any way. All participants can take part, knowing that their credibility & creativity remains intact & any photos shared will be to the glorification of the wonder of the pattern and the skill of the participants. Scruffy Badger is merely the happy hostess.
