It's a straight up View B. With a skirt. And pockets.
And darn it if it didn't turn out pretty cool.
The pockets are barely utilitarian - they're a bit too low - but in any case I only added them for the effect of those pleasingly flattering diagonal lines drawing the eyes down over the hips. Yes that's right I added useless pockets just coz they look good. They're kangaroo-style, lined with a light little scrap of jersey to reduce bulk (dat scuba be THICK).
Don't ask what that white blotch is on the fabric, I neither know nor, as it's on the inside, care.
Mmmm, lovely squishy scuba... It's cool but warm, soft but structured, drapes but doesn't cling... I edgestitched all the seams and turns to flatten out and sharpen up the 'bounce':
And it turned out just the right side of sack-like, stylish enough for work and comfy as ALL GET OUT.
Yes, the Linden dress is scubalicious and YUM.
Also of note:
- these little boots are the best shoe purchase I have ever made.
- figuring out how to use my phone as a camera remote is all well and good but I think what the resulting pictures demonstrate most clearly is my age. Seriously all this technology shit where will it end I ask you etc etc.
