|Picture taken assuming I would crop out my head, however that looked weird.|
Below is the SIL on our trip to NYC, pictured in front of the HUGE HEAD of my friend Louis, who we saw performing the role of Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine in the amazing Next to Normal. We actually went shopping together before this trip and BOTH bought this red dress, and of course, there are no pictures of me in it. We resisted the temptation to wear it on the same day.
|I'm about 4 inches taller than her--I can't believe she let me buy AND wear a dress this short!|
I thought it would be fun to tie in the new fabric by incorporating it at the waistline as well. The dress had a detail at the waist already, so I just mimicked the shape in a new piece of fabric (just cut it a little bigger) then ironed all of the edges under and topstitched it directly to the dress.
|Voila! I don't have to be afraid to bend down!|
