Today, I dug up a dress I'd made sometime in September/October. I made BWOF 09-2007-121 then, my first ever BWOF project, after seeing and loving Cidell's version. It took a little work (and some ripping) to trace and make my dress, but I thought it was worth it.
I really didn't wear it though, because of the back view - I thought the pleats in the butt stuck out funny, and I wanted to fix it.
Then a really good friend came into town, saw me wearing the dress, and told me, kindly, that it kind of made me look pregnant. (I have a tummy - my mom thinks its a beer gut. Hee hee. I don't care, I love me some beer) So, the dress got shoved to the back of my closet.
But since I've lost some weight with the Joshi's Holistic Detox thingy, I tried this dress on again, and OMG!!! I actually look kind of good. At the very least, not pregnant. Sweet!!!
Now, the detox has been a huge pain in the ass. I've had to give up - you name it, I've had to give it up. I've given up wheat, yeast, any kind of alcohol, any kind of processed food, coffee, sugar, potatoes, dairy and a whole lot more. In its place, I've been eating a lentil-rich, greens-rich, low-carb diet.
Seriously though, trying on this dress - all worth-while. (And the back pleats don't even look that funny anymore...)
