Hi you crafty bunch!
Yup, you read it… brown panda, that’s what Mr Loops calls this one… technically it’s ‘rust’ coloured but he doesn’t go for these fancy colour names…
Right so this one is a little different as I wanted to try one of the patterns that I haven’t tried yet, which isn’t hard because I have a TON of patterns and have made very few of them because I tend to stick with my favourites.
I’ve gotta say, this is a dress that you can eat a nice big roast dinner in and not have to worry about it showing because it’s nicely voluminuous at the bottom, but still gives you a little shape (AND IT ALSO HAS POCKETS!)
I am looking for opinions/advice though, I love how comfy it is, but I’m just not sure how it looks on me. MiL says she doesn’t think the colour works on me, Husband is freaked out by the weird shape of it…
(and probably by my tiger impression too)… and my friend Spammy likes it but thinks it’s just not “out there” enough for me, a bit too basic. Essentially I was hoping to get the effect of something like a long slightly oversized hoodie, but without the hood, but I fear it may look a little more mumu almost?!
So my thoughts are to perhaps shorten it a bit, maybe take in those weird pointy hip corners just a tad, and maybe even add a hood to it??? Or should I just leave it as is? What say you guys???
And don’t worry, I have some Rosie pics for you of course…
Hope you like!
Thanks in advance for opinions/advice!!
