Marfy 1659 basted...

As promised...
I did get it together, but it still needs work. This really is the best picture out of about 20.
I added 2" to the length of the bodice, and I think that if I raise the waist line 1" it will look better.
Yeah, I know that the collar is crooked, but the top fabric looks great! I am not sold on the bottom fabric, it may look a bit poofy. I will see if it relaxes a bit before I consider ditching it.
As for the look on me...
Well, we walked again this evening, and we got out our new 12lb medicine ball which is my new best friend. I also broke out my old pilates ball to sit on while doing crunches and twists while holding my new best friend. Hey, if I can lose 2" off of my hips in less than a month why can't I take 2" off of my waist!?


  1. What fabric have you used on the bottom? I like the style on you.

    If you can figure out how to lose 2" on your waist, I want details!

  2. I am going to work my way up to 10 minutes of crunches with the 12lb ball. I will let you know how it goes...
    The skirt is very light and crisp laminated cotton/silk with a gold sheen. I have over a yard left, so if I change my mind I can still take the skirt off and make a top.

  3. I love that combo. I'd keep the skirt, but you know how I heart shiny!
