Nope


It's going to the Goodwill pile.

It makes me look like a tree trunk. A wildly patterned tree trunk, but a tree trunk nonetheless.

Wadders happen.

Oh dear. That sucks! But yeah, wadders do happen. Here's to hoping for a wildly successful project next!

I was thinking "robe" vs. tree trunk, but I agree with you, Deb. Not your look.

Oh well, on to the next.

I do love the print....

Helene said...

Yep. We all have them. We fall in love with the print and then, hoooo-wee. It just does not work. At all. Time to move on.

Faye Lewis said...

Oh no! I love that print, sorry it didn't work for you.

Inge said...

Hilarious description :)
but indeed dont wear it ;)
on to the next

Oops...........I'm having trouble these days choosing knit prints that seem to be overwhelming or just plan baaad when made up.

Lorinda said...

What if you cut the skirt and add a solid color skirt? Then you would only waste half of it; or even just turn it into a blouse.

Melinda said...

I like Lorinda's idea. Chop it off to tunic length and wear with a pencil skirt or slim trousers.

Little Hunting Creek said...

Oh no! I'm like you-give it away and move on. Let us speak no more of it. ;)

Yell Timberrr and move on. I'll have to remember the tree trunk description as that is too funny. I've had some that were way worse than a tree trunk. Could it become a sleeveless shell with some of your magic?

meredithp said...

My first negative vibe came from the sleeves. I like the tunic idea...maybe sleeveless?

Vicki said...

Good! When you first posted the dress I thought - ooh yuk, far too much dress. But being polite, I didn't hit the post button. Would hate to say that if you really liked the dress. So, not you or your beautiful sewing. Just wrong pattern for a dress. But maybe a top If you really like the fabric.

Somebody will find it at the Goodwill shop and just love it. You're right - doo-doo happens! I meant wadders, yeah ...

As I read this, Kenny Rogers and 'the Gambler' was going through my head:

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.

You knew!!!

kathy said...

I love the big red NO circle.
Oh well.
at least you were sewing.

velosewer said...

So not even a top instead of a dress?

Jodi said...

I have that fabric, too, Debbie. I love it. But I agree that it didn't work in combination with this pattern. Maybe a top or skirt could still work, though?

Lisa said...

Yep- wadders happen. I just had one last week. Just means you're closer to the next "great" garment.

Chris Lucas said...

Hahahaha you are so funny.... and when a dress makes you feel like that then by all means get rid of it... on someone else will love it and knowing you it will be extremely well sewn and they'll get lots of wear out of it too :)

Sherril said...

I think that if you shorten those sleeves and raise the hemline, the dress wouldn't be overwhelming you.

Jhordan Kee said...

A little diet can be your license to wear that dress. There is nothing wrong with the print it's cool.
