As Promised, Red Dress Photos
I had my son snap a few photos of the red dress after church on Sunday morning. It doesn't look quite as fresh as it did when I left the house earlier in the morning, but you get the idea.
I'm very pleased with it. It wore comfortably, even though it is pretty fitted. I'm still not quite on board with the pleated skirt, but I don't think it looks horrible, either. I think if there wasn't such a disparity between my waist and hips, it would look less out of proportion.
Thank you all for the comments on the running outfit. Cidell had used gripper elastic, too, and so I ordered up the gripper elastic this morning and was able to get it in 3/4" wide, which is the same width as the hem. I think the fabric definitely had an influence on the creeping up of the shorts, this lycra stuff is pretty slippery. That's certainly something to think about with future garments!
Parting Shot: With a Bow. Oh yeah, we just had to put a bow on Wellie. My daughter was looking through the ribbon bin with Wellie's help and that's what he got as a reward for "helping".
