hi all, the dress is coming along.
I changed it a lot.
LOL Elizabeth - I might have thought I was joking too. After all, it's a bag lady look - but very "fashion forward" at the moment, and I'm in a whimsical mood.
for the nitty gritty on my design process yesterday check out here

Nanci, see, I don't consider those Leggings, as in the leggings that we wore in the 80's, the leggings I associate with baby weight and fat butts - those to me look like tights without feet - which is just a twist on hosiery.

and I didn't mean to whine yesterday, I just meant that I'm going to quit pressuring myself with lists of "what to get done", 'cause guess what?!, it doesn't all get done, and I don't need to feel guilt over it.
Thanks for the virtual hugs though.

I like the dress and am always so impressed with your style. Are you working from a pattern that you're adapting, or just winging it?

If you're truly a fiber artist, you're supposed to be able to follow your inspiration and sometimes that means that you don't finish a project before starting one. Yet, you have the ability to complete a commission when necessary. I think you're doing just fine.

I'd look like a bag lady in that dress, in the worst sense of the word.

Not leggings? More like cigar pants?

It's very fashion-forward pinafore-ish!

I saw a question about pinafore-type dress patterns on patternreview and later that day found TWO pinafore dress patterns in my stash. One is a late 1970s Betsy Johnson and the other is a Butterick.

I might make one of them (the Butterick is actually cuter) for my daughter since I would look terrible in a pinafore and the patterns are her size anyway!

I know what you're saying about the different types of leggings, Marji. However, what you described is something I am more likely to associate with stirrup pants (yech!)

Marji- I wholheartedly agree- drop the guilt! No more guilt!

Personally, I went through the same thing, the leggings and baby weight- I dropped the leggings, but unfortunately kept the weight.

Ok, I find the design facinating. You're design board is great - love the pleats instead of gathers - less of the baby-doll that way I think. I'm so curious to know what you find for the hosery/leggings. A very dramatic impact for the perfect shoes and pretty feet. How fun Marji!
