That looks amazing on you. Great job Smiley. Can you breastfeed in that top? I have a nursling and I've been worried about making tops in non-knit fabric for fear that it won't be easy enough to nurse in.

It's doable, but not super glamorous. :p I might not wear it with a feeding-every-ten-seconds newborn, but for an older nursling who only tops up once or twice a day, it's fine. The  pattern would work well in a slightly stretchy fabric, too - not like a jersey, but one of those stretchy suitings, maybe?

And yeah, breastfeeding in dresses is a major pain. I'm planning to make some dresses by cutting a blouse pattern slightly shorter and adding a waistband and a circle skirt for a kind of fifties look. That should be OK for breastfeeding.

That's a good idea. I'll have to see if I can get something worked out.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Tilt your head, it's good for your neck.

Oh the irony, I'm writing this message with a torticollis and a minerva on the neck =D

Anyway, what a nice dress ! I love the skirt and the belt, very feminine. Nice job !

Never ignore a coincidence. Unless you're busy, in which case always ignore a coincidence.
