You have probably noticed that I’m less on the cutting edge of fashion and more on the handle of the razor, so that is why I’m writing. I normally don’t blog about stuff that hasn’t been sewn yet, since that’s a surefire way to make it never actually occur or to be a wadder, but I thought I’d post this and see if anyone had an opinion they’d be willing to share with me.
The planned dress is NewLook 6211. I made the skirt way back when, but it was in a knit, and my current plan is to use…erm…rayon challis. 😳 In turquoise…:oops: I’m so incredibly predictable. You’ll be surprised to learn that my closet actually has other colors in it, like grey…and black…and…this isn’t helping.
Aaaanyway, my question for ya’ll is: side cutouts or no side cutouts? I kind of want them, but I realize that I’m a) not a 20-something, and b) not exactly skinny, so I’m unsure if this sort of thing is appropriate. My thoughts were that if they showed my stretch marks (TMI?) in my muslin I’d eliminate them, otherwise…
What would you do?
P.S. Hubby says they’re stupid and should be left out.
