fezzes are cool. Oh, and a bow tie. Bow ties are cool.
And a dress. Dresses are cool. This dress being an edited version of Simplicity 5803, view 1. I drafted a skirt section and added armhole facings to the neck facings to make it sleeveless.
Two new (to me) stitches were employed. I forgot to cut the back facing on a fold so I had to graft my two halves together using a ‘joining stitch’. Pretty pleased with the result, although this photo does also showcase my slap-dash overcasting:
And.. I used herringbone stitch on my hand-stitched hem. Pretty pleased with that too, I hope it holds.
The bow tie pattern is courtesy of Miss P, the fabric is Liberty Carline . I made some mis-calculation with my neck measurement so I can’t currently wear this on my neck… Apart from that, I like muchly.
The fez was appropriated from my son. Together they look like this:
What does it look like on me? If only I could show you. Here are the results of a few experiments with the camera balanced at various locations around the garden:
Yeah. Maybe I should get to grips with the timer and the tripod.
The reason for creating such an outfit? The Day of the Doctor 23.11.13. Can. Not. Wait.
