I love Ms. Oona-Balloona. She is rockin’ cool. I wish I could be as cool as her.
I’m just a humble librarian though…
But with this dress…
I think I can channel a little Ms. Oona of my own.
WOW this is a loud fabric. For someone who is pattern averse, getting this freebie in the mail made my head spin. What the heck was I going to do with ZIGZAGS… holy moly!
I decided to do a dry run of the halter neck shirt pattern I found in Burda that I was going to make with my cherry red silk jersey.
I’m SO glad I did! I forgot that halters require special hardware for busty gals…see?
I don’t have any special hardware…. but that’s okay though because I LOVE me a bateau neckline, which is how I wound up modifying the dress after looking at it as a halter and hating it!
You know what?
I actually kind of like it.
Maybe with a black cardigan to tone it down a little?
