Fat Halter

Moggy will testify that I have been planning on making a 'fat halter' for quite some time. Today I finally did it, from this pattern. I had the Anne Adams sundress out and just about ready to place on the fabric, but I felt the need for something saucier. You can't fight the sauce. Go with the sauce.

I admit I debated with myself whether to add the rick rack. Then I came to my senses. There is no frock which is not enhanced by rick rack. Even wedding dresses. Just you wait, next year rick rack will be all over the bridal magazines.

(The rick rack also goes around the outside edge of the halter, however the halter's fatness makes it bunch up so it's not visible in the photo)

I'd like to see that wedding with rickrack trimmed tuxes as well, thanks!

LADIES OF THE FROCKS, I would like to test the waters for a cheery political sew-along. How about we each make A Dress For A New Gubbermint, interpreted as we see fit? My sewing has stalled. I need A Project to focus on. I'm thinking maybe a frock version of the labor-dominated schematic of parliament mostly red, a bit of blue, and a little flash of green and amber for the Greens and Independents. Want to play along??
