A rare exception.
Yes yes, I know I wrote in a previous entry that empire waists should only be worn by pregnant women or the lead in a Jane Austin play but I just purchased this dress and it’s a winner, I promise.
It occured to me that I could sew this quite easily but the problem I keep running into is the availability of interesting fabric in Seattle. Basically, I’m held captive by whatever the chain fabric stores sell. If I lived in NYC or San Fran, I’d have a million options but alas, here in Seattle…not so much.
