oona does it!: WHATEVER.
oh, hello darling. i was just having a little sip of pinot noir after a morning of sewing. no, it's not too early– surely it's wine thirty somewhere in the world.
well, dear, if you must know, the ladies over at the sew weekly have been giving me quite a run for my money. a handful of them have requested an oona does it!… it pains me to say it… in a solid color. three of them demanded BLACK, no less! do you remember what happened the last time someone asked me to make a BLACK dress?!
i thought you might have forgotten.
so, snookums, this week i decided to challenge myself. an exercise in building up my strength to working in something a bit more conservative. so i whipped up this little sundress.
what's that you say? it's still a fairly loud dress?
DO YOU NEED YOUR EYES EXAMINED?! can't you see i've used the SAME FABRIC for the skirt AND the bodice?!!! this is COMPLETELY out of character for me! i get a migraine just LOOKING at this washed out concoction! i can't TELL you how hard it was to keep my paws off the multicolored stripes and dots and zigzags just BEGGING to be paired with this paisley!!!
although this dress is far too conservative for my tastes, i do enjoy the back. and truly it was challenging for me to– how i loathe the word– match. but baby steps, darling. before you know it i'll be giving those sew weekly dames what they want, and sewing up an oona does it! in a solid color. quite possiby noir.
luckily, we have plenty of the pinot variety to help me along.
