I almost didn’t post today’s Me Made, because I’m not terribly happy with it. It almost certainly won’t survive the next wardrobe cull, lets put it that way.
It SHOULD work: it’s my favourite Fen dress pattern, with a terrific cotton/linen fabric from Nerida Hansen and designed by Lisa Congdon, but I’m just not sold in the finished product. Possibly the big print doesn’t suit the boxy shape, or maybe I shouldn’t have dropped the waist.
It can be salvaged (probably) by lopping off the skirt and making a pair of separates, or by unpicking the skirt and eliminating the dropped waist, but finding the time! Sigh.
On the topic of Princess Highway though, did you all see that they’re finally, finally extending into plus-sizes? This is very exciting for me, because I’ve loved them for years, even though I’ve been mostly sized out of anything except their knitwear. I’m a bit torn though, because they’re doing it exclusively with Modcloth, and it’s disappointing that I have to go through a US retailer to buy an Australian brand in my size. Am kind of obsessed with this raincoat though.
