However, I do have some issues when it comes to certain necklines. Particulary a deep V - especially if it's paired with a crossover. My small-breasted compatriots can rock this style without a second thought. I try it and I might as well be wearing a sign that screams "LOOK AT MY BOOBS!!!!!" Sometimes that's okay - but it seriously limits how much wear those outfits get.
And when sundress season comes along, it can be hard to find styles that provide enough coverage. Sure, I can throw a tank top on underneath - but you don't always want that extra layer. So I've come up with a solution.
When I visited Sam last weekend, she gave me a couple of her old dresses.
|Deep V + Crossover.... might as well just head out in my bra!|
The dress is absolutely gorgeous! But I just need a little more coverage! So I dug up some of the leftover eyelet material from the dress I sewed in July. I cut a triangle more than big enough to cover the V.
|Best sewing tip ever - LOTS of pins!|
I've got a couple more dresses that will see much more use once I find some fabric scraps to work with them!
