Oh heck, why not one more post? I also finally wore my version of Megan Nielsen’s Darling Ranges dress last week since it was finally warm enough to wear it outside.
I lengthened the torso and shortened the skirt by just making the hem wider, which makes it look bulkier than I anticipated. (I have this fear of cutting off excess fabric *in case* I may want to lengthen it someday.) Overall, I’m pretty happy with how the dress turned out, bulky hem and all. However, that said, it’s not quite “me.” Oh, it’s cute, but a little too feminine (housewifey?) and not quite…I don’t know, threatening enough? I don’t know how to describe my style yet. But it does have pockets….
I have found, however, that this dress is great to wear to ballet since I can easily throw it on top of my leotard and head out. So will probably wear it for that if nothing else. =)
