It was in a free bundle from FabricMart Fabrics, so I'm not even 100% sure of its contents, but there IS something synthetic in it. The ribs are stiff, and didn't want to cooperate under the needle. But after reading about Steph's crinkle linen version, and how the ties in her woven top didn't stretch, and she tied it in the back, I think maybe MAYBE this one will work.
OK, enough disclaiming. No picture of me in it... just on the dress form (I don't call her anything, but perhaps she does need a name).
Wrapped and tied in the back. For the record, I made the size 35 straight up (i.e., no alterations at all).
Tied in the back. See the size of that knot? It's a whopper. I swear this fabric didn't feel that thick in a single layer!
Bottom line... it's going to have to hang out in the magic closet for awhile. Lucky for it, we're approaching hot weather time, and it's more of a spring/fall thickness. Definitely not summer.
And, I'm hoping tomorrow to finish the skirt. No promises on that though.
