I'm just after a little input from my wise readers today.
I have this great black cotton eyelet that I picked up earlier this year from The Fabric Store. I really want to use it to make a Simplicity 2591, but am unsure whether to line the dress.
I kinda like the violet lining, but as usual, am worried about it looking a little too 'crafty' and naturally it will add bulk, which I don't need in summer. If I don't line it and just wear a black slip, the effect will be more subtle, but you'll still see the detail.
Also what's your opinion about scalloped hems? Too cutesy or OK?
I'm feeling a little indecisive today. Can you tell?
Lastly, I've received quite a few requests recently for my copy of Simplicity 2591. I'm not sure what has stirred this recent interest as the pattern is old. Unfortunately, I'm not ready to let go of mine yet, but if one of my readers has a copy they don't want, I urge you to pop it on Etsy or Ebay. There are people in need.
