In Your Eyes.
Alternative titles for this post: Umm, excuse me. My eyes are up here, Can't take my eyes off of you, Ill be watching you.... I'll just cut to the chase. There was no way to get around some awkward pattern placement with this print.
I did what I could. I managed to get the overlapping faces to line up nearly perfectly across the wrap, WIN! But, I ended up with a giant face on my bum, LOSE. I certainly think it would have been worse had I ended up with lips on my... well, you don't have to be Dr. Seuss to know where I was headed with that train of thought.
Truthfully, I've never had much of an issue with people staring at my chest. My build is definitely all about that bass, no treble (which comes with its own variety of objectification), so I think I'm safe(r).
This is another rendition of the Maria Denmark Rachel Wrap Dress sewn using a rayon jersey fabric purchased in Brussels at Les Tissus Du Chien Vert. It's every bit as stretchy as the fabric I used on my first Rachel Wrap Dress.
I didn't make any changes from my first attempt. This pattern makes a great dress. It's incredibly easy to wear, and I feel instantly put together and ready for anything while I'm wearing it. I already made a third version, and I expect that, somewhere down the road, I'll make more.
What a fabulous dress! The fabric is absolutely incredible--I've never seen anything quite like it! Great work matching up the face on the overlap in the front, too. (And for the record, I totally agree about having a big face on your rear view vs. the front at the same height, LOL!)
