I actually made an item of clothing. That fits. That I may ACTUALLY wear! HOORAY! So I am 6 feet tall, not thin (read size 14) and am a bit muscle-ey due to my job as a slave (read landscaper) so needless to say dresses that fit, flatter and don't make me look like a drag queen are few and far between. I have been holding on to new look 6557 for a while and here are the results (With a few minor modifications)! Thanks for looking. Oh, and I want to make another one in the second fabric for a wedding I am going to this weekend. Ciao!

THe next one...

That looks great on you!  It's very flattering, and I really like that fabric.  It's super cute, and you look beautiful!

The second one looks like it's going to be even better,  I can't wait to see it!

Oh, and your "job as a slave" comment made me giggle. Cheesy
