Two more FOs today, one of which you've never even seen!
First off, here's the "real" maxi dress:
I've mentioned that this fabric is pretty thin; if you look, you can see that I'm wearing a full slip underneath for modesty's sake. I'm still not sure what to do about the bra strap situation with this dress. When I wore my blue one, I did wear a racer-back bra which didn't show in the back, but was visible at the front neck. Here I'm wearing a plain old bra, which isn't visible at the front but can be seen, along with the slip's straps, at the back. I know people do this all the time and it's not too shocking, but it kind of bugs me!
Interestingly, I had a hard time figuring out how to accessorize this dress. In the end, I went with bronze metallic sandals, gold earrings and necklace, a bronze beaded bracelet I made years ago, and this olive green shrug I knit years ago. I really like this shrug: I made this pattern 3 times! This one is pre-Ravelry, but here's a link for a brown one I made. And here's a picture of my bracelet, which I don't wear nearly enough:
And here's FO #2: I finished my Adrift cardigan a couple weeks ago. Since I've made this one before, and since this is supposed to be my "winter" version, it felt kind of anti-climatic. I just took one picture of it yesterday, so you can see how gorgeous the color is, but if you want to see many different ways in which it can be worn, see this post.
And last but not least, today is the last day of my Seamless Pledge. I haven't written about it since I made the commitment on Jan. 1 to refrain for 6 months from buying any new clothing or shoes, because it's pretty much been a non-event! I wasn't sure I could do it, clothes horse that I am, but I was able to complete the six months relatively painlessly! So as of today, I'm committing to another 6 months of Seamlessness, to make it a full year!
