|Yes, that is a badly drawn Grumpy Cat.|
You remember the unknown-origin sheeting I tried to dye a while back? I decided I had so much of it I needed to do something with it.
I originally planned to make a dress with New Look 6723, which I bought for a ludicrously low price at a fabric shop near my boyfriend's house around a year ago. I cut out everything, started to make the bodice, and by the time it had formed and I was thinking about the zip, I stared at this pink half-dress with disdain and pushed it aside.
The thought of making a plain pink dress bothered me. And it bothered me enough to not pick up the bodice for a whole two months. See. I'm not a pink person.
Back in february I tweeted this picture, musing to myself that if I painted red stripes onto the dress, surely that would work? It would ease me into a false sense of security, because technically I'm wearing red, right? And the pattern would stop me from thinking I'd turned into a pretty pink princess for just a second. As Roisin said, it would make a garment wearable for me.
