Put a ring on it

I made this dress last summer and used it a bit but never really like it, despite the colors and despite it being linen. It somehow felt too clumsy.

I decided  a reason could be that the waist is too low to be high and too high to be low, so I figured a belt would pull the waistline further down. Worth a try.

I had to buy the belt buckle, was aiming for a white one for a sixtie’s touch, but couldn’t find one. This red one which-isn’t-the-same-color-but-close-enough worked fine I think.

We’ll see if I like it better now. My expression isn’t too promising I’d say, but I’ve worn it. Seeing the pictures I’m thinnking naybe i should shorten the skirt as well.

Just enough

20170629_213907[1]I found these linen curtains in a thrift store and thought they may be just enough wide for a pair of trousers. And what do you know, it’s exactly what I need! (The seam allowance is included on this pattern.)

Good to know, since I often come across these curtains in thrift stores, they were really popular when I worked in a fabric store in early 2000’s, so I guess they’re badly out now. (No, I haven’t got a clue about fashions in home decorating) They often come in great fabrics though, and I’ve been wondering if I could use them for something. Now I know.
