And it doesn't fit . . .
Set it free.
I made this dress from BWOF 3/08 #115. It's Liberty. It's fully underlined in cotton batiste. It had 12 freaking darts in it.
I love it. It's fitted, unforgiving, and has no stretch.
I wore it once, to my friend's wedding last spring. Even with uber-Spanx, it was uncomfortable.
Deepika brought me a lovely piece of raw silk from India. I sent her home with that dress. I'll make something that fits me; she got a dress that fits her.
It's a lot like letting my friend wear - and keep - my great aunt's wedding gown. If it's not doing anything in my closet but pissing me off, I need to let it go to someone who will wear it, and in this case, someone who appreciates the work who went into making it.
Maybe now that this version is gone from my closet, I'll get around to making one that fits me.
Or maybe not. So many patterns; so little time.
