Recognise this thing? :D
And something else looks familiar too... oh that's right, I have shown this dress here before already. But there has been a small but significant alteration... can you spot it?
I wore this dress for the first time on the day I photographed it for my pattern review with a little camisole on underneath; and all was hunky dory. Didn't notice anything amiss. Then the weather warmed up more, and the second time I wore it out without any insulating, protective layer on underneath... and woooaaatch-y! Those tough-guy industrial-strength brass zipper teeth might look super cool but they turn nasty when scratching up against soft and tender tummy skin!
Urgent action was required... fortunately I had a strip of leftover fabric.
I've added a full-length zip placket. Actually, I think it was pretty dumb of me not to think of this in the first place, hehe. I concede that. Doh. Well, I've thought of it now. Better late than never, no?
Much more comfy now!
I'm amending my review; and most importantly: must remember to tick that box "minor update only". It's embarrassing when you forget to tick that, yes?? Your review shoots right up to the top of the heap, and it's like there is no. Going. Back.
Woops. Oh sorry about that, people; I'm not really trying to force the same review on y'all twice. Really. I'm not. Hehe. (cringe)
