Me-Made-March '11 - Day 5



The dress is McCalls 5317. It was in the mend pile, mostly because, without the belt, I look like a beached whale in this dress. (Also why I never reviewed or showed a photo on the blog.) The belt helped a lot.

I'm wearing a store-bought (gasp!) tank-top underneath - the effect was a little boobtastic without it. Yes, that breaks the Me-Made rules, but honestly, I think making tank-tops is a bit of a waste of my sewing time, especially when I have the perfect store-bought tank top. (Plus, I was in a rush, and didn't feel like thinking up an alternate outfit.)

I love the colour combo on this - that wide brown belt is so right for the pretty print of your dress. You should have shown this off previously - it looks really good!
