I learned everything I know about modeling growing up in the 1970’s. From a Fig Newton commercial.*
But let’s look at the dress instead of talking about my awkward runway skills. The pattern is the Jenny dress by Sis Boom Pattern Company. The fabric is a soft and gorgeous chambray.
I must tell you of my love for patterns by Sis Boom. They actually include pieces for cup size adjustments. In my experience with four of their patterns, I can measure and print and the finished garment actually fits on the first try.
This dress is so comfortable and covers everything I want to keep covered. It is also figure flattering in real life.
*Sad but true. If you remember the commercial, there was a dude in a Big Fig costume. He did a song and dance, and did a Lord of the Dance type pose. Every photo op from my youth, and into my twenties, included my Big Fig pose. Even now I can barely keep my arms down when my picture is snapped. The struggle is real, people.
