A parcel of mixed emotions

My two purchases arrived today, the bloody cutsew is too too small. Alas, I have the meaty forearms of a Thomas Hardy milkmaid and as the cutsew fabric has very little give, so there is problem.

The Marie Antionette JSK on the other hand fits like a dream. The waist is low and it has a nicely concealed panel of front shirring. I can't get over how old school it looks, lots and lots of lace. The pattern is pleasingly intricate and the colour is an interesting combination of lilac and purple grey. The condition is pretty good for the price, the fabric feels a little worn and a portion of the neckline lace has come apart from the fabric.

I get quite excited by cows, especially Jersey ones. I like their glamorous movie star eyes and yellow colour. Hardy milkmaids always come to tragic ends and get their hearts broken by farmers!

That image will stay with me forever. Louise the loli milkmaid and her movie star cows.

You have a choice of roles, hard working farm lad or caddish squire with mutton chop whiskers!

I think you will look so good in your Marie Antoinette JSK, perhaps with bouffant hair and lots of cake...not on your head though. I guess you can always sell the cutsew? What's it like? Any pictures to share? :D

Hehe I think lots of cake got me into this situation in the first place!

It is quite structured, more like a blouse than a cutsew. The picture on my old post is quite true to the colours. I will have a little think about selling it, would you like measurements?

I will bring it with me next time I see you and you can take a look.

Perhaps your lady could make me a larger version? It seem sensible to order lots and LOTS of things at once...

I am hoping the cutsew will become jealous and stretch itself with rage when it sees the good time me and the dress are having...
