After looking at these gorgeous frocks, I thought, “I can do that.” And I made a mental note to buy a shirt and some buttons to recreate this expensive look for pennies. So off I went to Target to get a shirt (I didn’t like the necklines of my existing shirts for this project) and some buttons at Jo Ann’s. When I got started, I was pretty hesitant about the layout but stuck with a symmetrical pattern. The result is underwhelming to say the least. I have tried on the shirt and it just looks so… bare. I think the only hope for reviving this shirt is adding more buttons, but my motivation to head back to Jo Ann’s (which is far away) is waning.
Has anyone else had this kind of let-down after such high hopes for a creative project?
Guess I should keep my day job and leave the clothing design to Kristin.
Side Note: In case someone looks at this photo and thinks “that’s not that bad, really.” It really is bad, the photo is just being kind.
