How much pink is too much pink??
This much pink:
Egad. I'm going to have frothy pink nightmares after this.
I bought the heart fabric on super clearance awhile back and after experiencing the linen-esque texture, I was dying to use it. But, I had no coordinating fabric until yesterday. I found this M'Liss Rae (more on her at the end of this post) print on sale, and even though I retardedly forgot the swatch of heart print to match it to, it turned out to be the perfect companion. A little too perfect, actually. Almost like twins with a diffent hair cut. Too much pink!!
But, I did get to practice my new applique technique on this dress, and that made me super psyched!!
Until I started sewing the applique on, that is. My generally agreeable sewing machine threw a mini-fit over the applique pattern I chose and decided that it did not want to make my life easier. So, my stitchery looks a little like I was sewing during a cab ride in New York:
I know that my imperfections aren't obvious. That's why I chose the pattern and fabrics the way that I did. I know, genius!! I'm confident that I will get better with practice and I can graduate to bolder images.
Total time was about 3 hours, and the total cost was a little higher than normal at around $3. Still not bad!
Now, M'Liss Rae.... Listen lady, I appreciate your terrific print that was vital in helping me complete dress #7 for Pretty Pretty Princess, but we need to chat about your name. Dropping the "e" and "a" from your name is ridiculous. An apostrophe is not an acceptable character in a proper name. It's like when Prince changed his moniker to that androgynous symbol. It's confusing and totally uncool. So, Melissa, I stongly urge you to rethink your marketing strategy because, quite frankly, it annoys me enough to not want to buy your products in the future. Think about it.
