I have never laughed so hard as I did when I tried it on and found the weird kangaroo pocket hangs below my crotchline. And I am tall! I have long arms and I seriously have to stretch a little to stick my hands in the pockets.
When my husband saw it, and saw that I was laughing so hard I was crying, he said "wow. There's a lot going on there. Maybe in a solid?"
It kind of reminds me of the time in high school I was sewing with my mom and my grandma in the room and ended up sewing the four seams of two legs together, creating one big stovepipe. I laughed until I thought I was going to throw up.
This dress is actually more flattering in these pictures than it is in person, if that's even possible?
I still have to finish the neckline and armhole facings and hem it, but I can't decide if I should even do that much more work! Should I cut it off above the kangaroo sack and turn it into a top I could wear for work? Ack! Oh, well, at least this time I know it wasn't me, it was the design. What should I do with this? Is the fabric ugly? I'm so at a loss.
