MMM’12 day 2

It’s MMM’12 day 2 and although it’s still cold in the morning, I’m resist wearing boots for now.
The knit dress is great made up in printed fabric and I made this version in 2009. This morning I made some adjustments in the centre back and centre front to make it fit better. I’m also wearing the slip of desperation to stop it from clinging to my legs.

My jacket has double welt pockets on one side and single welt on the other side. The jacket is fully lined and interfaced so it’s lasted me at least three job changes.

This time I did a couple different things since last week’s version. This fabric has been in my stash since the purple purchase frenzy in 2009. I think this was a local purchase because there were no emotional attachments that came to mind.


This style was really fun to wear to work in the eggplant/brown print so now i’m on the look out for great buckles. So the fabric is a dark print and there’s still heaps left. I decided not to use the same fabric as the facing. I’ve used black underwear elastic. My initial idea was to use white FOE, but I wasn’t brave enough to use this contrast. I will next time. Anyway, the black elastic was easy to apply, soft against the skin and keeps the neckline from flipping open.

The drawing shows the belt at the front but my belt tends to hide to the side. That I can live with while I search for some great belt buckles.
