I was thinking about wearing it (Vogue 7871) to a wedding we're attending next weekend in Santa Cruz. That was until I read the wedding guest dress rules, which in summary says you can't wear white, red or black. Then I got all paranoid and decided that I'd just wear this dress to breakfast with the Mr. and Mrs. the morning after. But now, I don't think I'll be wearing this to any event next weekend. Everything was smooth sailing until I got to actually trying it on, zipper and all. Hmmm.....
WHAT is THAT back fuglyness ?!#?#??#!? (*hangs head in sadness*)
Just in case anyone is curious what this dress should look like, here are a couple of links:
Pattern Review (of course)
This awesome version from Angry Chicken
and last but not least this awesomeness from Belle Epoque.
Oh ya, did I mention that this pattern is VERY EASY? How did I manage to mess this one up?
