[Whoops, edited to remove picture, sorry folks … nothing to see here, move along … okay, if you need something to see, you can check out this .]
So, I'm pretty sure that the penalty for single-handedly declaring International Wear A Dress Week (oh, the hubris) was that I was roundly and soundly smacked down by an enormous toppling pile of work, to the point where, one morning, I had to actually stand still and think: "Did I just take a shower, or not?" (Luckily, my hair was still damp, so I was able to answer that question. When the question is "Did I brush my teeth?" I just go ahead and brush them again, but it seems wasteful to re-shower.)
Although I did not post ONE SINGLE TIME during IWAD week, I did wear dresses every day, except for Friday, when I wore a skirt. (I was finally at home on Friday.) I am willing to submit signed affidavits, or I could tell you that I don't even remember the last time I wore a bifurcated garment that wasn't intended for sleep. (Ah: I wear dresses all day, but prefer to sleep in pajamas. There's a contradiction for you.)
The dresses in the Flickr stream (135 at last count!!!) are FANTASTIC. Check out , and , and , and , and , and oooh, don't forget … heck, you might as well go and !
In other sewing news, I bought three different colors of denim (orange, teal, and black) and am going to make some hard-wearing dresses out of them, I hope. (I spent some time sewing today but got frustrated and decided that I should stop before inadvertently driving the seam ripper through soft tissue.)
I am traveling again this week, and, as penance for not posting during IWADW I will commit to taking a terrible hotel-room-mirror photo of my outfit every day. (Look, this is me programming a reminder into my phone!) Be afraid, be very afraid.
