This dress is fast becoming a favourite for comfort reasons - it looks good belted and makes a nice cutout, but on the frequent occasion I eat more than I should I can remove the belt and relax in comfort. I used a free dress pattern from Papavero. Google translate tells me it's a Polish website. It's not too difficult to navigate but does require you to sign up to download the free patterns. Sometimes with the different patterns there are user's photo versions of the completed product at the bottom. This dress is the "Ready cut - dress without a hood".
Unbelted it has the look of a Homer Simpson muumuu
I finished the dress with an invisible zip at the back. The pattern was a print at home pdf pattern which I like because it saves me tracing the flimsy tissue paper patterns to paper before then tracing to fabric. The print options are per size so you need to check their sizing chart, but this is one of the few dress I've cut straight off that fit really well.
And this is Russell after deciding the tripod was not an enemy, maybe a plaything, possibly a friend and deciding he'd much rather be in the photo with me than fighting the unknown. There are a bunch of photos with his tail or nose poking in, and horrible ones of me trying not to laugh as he head butts my butt or licks my hand.
Sadly I missed Me Made May this year. I did wear as many of my me made items as possible but didn't get around to document it. I think a month worth of hospital bathroom mirror shots would've turned most people off. I actually don't know where all the time has gone. Suddenly I'm nearly halfway through my internship and have to apply for jobs all over again. I feel like I've just got this one and would like to focus on working but alas I've now got to pimp my CV and think of clever ways of incorporating hospital values into a gazillion and a half cover letters. Wish me luck.
