Outside of my Comfort Zone
This dress, from the May 07 issue of BWOF is haunting me. When I saw the photo on the Burda website. The first thing I noticed was the notch in the hemline. When I finally got a look at the technical drawing, I saw the "corners" , for lack of a better word, in the seams. I've never seen a detail like that, especially in a plus-size dress. Usually plus-size dresses are boring. But not BWOFs. The only problem is, (and it really isn't a problem) this dress is way outside of my comfort zone. Most of my dresses are boring, plus-size dresses. But, I can't get this design out of my mind. I am really developing a more emotional approach to my sewing. I'm buying fabric just because I like it. I'm considering dresses with unusual details. These actions are out of character for me. Maybe it's menopause induced insanity.
