When I first made this shirtdress I received a comment on Pattern Review that it was "like the dreaded flannie", but so much nicer" Of course this was the exact effect I was absolutely hoping to evoke... ;D
It's comfortable, so (shrug) mmm. And it is not summer yet, so a little skirt underneath gives a little extra wind protection to the legs. Yeah.
I have nothing else intelligent to say. Come to think of it, it's not like I've even said anything halfway intelligent so far. So I should just quit now, cutting straight to, I wish you all a wonderful weekend and ...er, see ya round like a rissole!
Oops, that wasn't an intelligent thing to say either. Just the sort of thing a flannie-wearer would come up with... Maybe wearing this thing is transmuting me. I'll try to wear something more erudite tomorrow, which might help leach some brain-liness back into the ol' psyche.
So, on the morrow, fellow needle-wielders; for a spot of worthy debate on poetry and philosophy.
