Girls, this is what I’m talking about!
Did you see this delicious creation over on Carolyn’s blog?
click the pic for more photos. It’s her fabulous interpretation of vogue 8764… A pattern I was pretty meh on, until I saw Carolyn’s version.
This lady looks seriously fine! She’s employing the fabulous Rule of Thirds here… You thought that was a photography term? Well, maybe so, but it also applies to clothes. This was an awesome lesson from Sewing for Plus Sizes… Never wear things that cut you in half. Either raise or lower your waistline… Your choice!
So classic Chanel jacket? Out!
Long riding coat? Definitely in.
Low rise anything? Ten foot pole territory!
High waisted skirts? Oh, it’s on, baby.
Carolyn’s dress does a much more elegant job of illustrating this phenomenon than my pencil skirt of last night, though. No fidgeting or adjusting to maintain your proportions throughout the day!
Keep rockin’ what your mama gave you, Miss C! You are an inspiration to us all!
