Thanks for all the wonderful comments about my recent dress. Wow! You guys are such a self esteem boost! I received a few questions about it, and I am trying to answer questions promptly.
1. How is the sizing? Well, I cut my typical size 12. This doubleknit does not have a huge amount of stretch and the dress is very fitted and has to be pulled on over the head. I definitely wouldn't size down if you are using a stable knit.
2. Did I overlap the tucks over the darts? I am not sure what this question is asking. I followed the instructions and did not deviate. Hope that helps.
Hard to believe right now but when we went outside to snap this picture, the temperature was in the high 70's and I was sweltering in head to toe wool and that warm turtleneck. Now of course it is super cold and we might even see some snow tonight. Snow! In south Texas! That just about never happens.
Anyway, I still really love this jacket, although I have not had an opportunity to wear it yet because that skirt just started fitting again. I bought a plaid boucle with plum in it to make another skirt with. That just may get saved for next winter, though.
I hope all my fellow Americans are staying warm!
