This is mostly a place holder post. I have been working for the last two weeks (well, intermittently) on a green dress project.
I was inspired by this dress that came across my feed on Pinterest. It’s a dress by Viktor + Rolf, and it’s on a bunch of “sewing inspiration” boards, because it appears easy to make. “DIY men’s shirt and tank” – but there’s not a tutorial to be found. Because it’s not as easy as it looks.
This is my third green men’s dress shirt I’ve tried. The first two were too small to make a dress, but this is a large, so I was sure it would work.
But when you cut off the sleeves, the width just isn’t there, especially if you want it a little flowy.
So I’m going to keep searching for a XXL green men’s shirt – and I might just have to buy a new one at Target instead of hoping to thrift one. (Thanks for the idea, Christy. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that before.)
So here’s yet another green to-be-continued project. I am determined to finish it, though. (And, Green, after this, I’m not sure you’re my favorite color anymore.)
And I’m completely out of green projects for the month, so I’m off to make something blue instead.
