I thought it looked pretty good. But still didn't solve the problem of the dickey-on-steroids half-shirt girls-gone-wild problem. What to put on the bottom?
Well...how about this number? A former maternity dress thrifted a while back? Hmmm? How about it?
Yep. That'd do it. A little slicety-slice of the rotary cutter, and off came the cute-but-boring-me cross-over top. Then, a little sewy-mcsew-sew, and voila, out came this:
I took in the belly a little, so it wouldn't be too maternity-looking, and did a double seam to join the two halves for strength. It's a wee short, so I may add a little sumpin on the bottom. But I think Lily (this scoliotic, bumpy dress form, purchased on Craig's List after the pitiful post, whose body looks remarkably like mine, is named Lily) looks pretty ravishing. There's a bit of sexy librarian going on here, don't you think?
Well. Maybe not as sexy as this librarian.
But I try.
