On Thursday and Friday nights last week, I put together my second Pendrell. This time, I used view C, and cut out the size smaller than the first one. The smaller size worked out perfectly. I finally have a wearable Pendrell!
I was rushing to finish it so I could wear it with my Ginger on a trip to NYC this past Sunday. I ended up not wearing it because I initially thought it didn't look right with my Ginger, but upon second thought I think it looks pretty good!
I had originally ordered this fabric online to make napkins, but when it arrived in the mail I thought it was too thin to be useful as a napkin. It's thin enough that I need to wear a tank top underneath it and while I'm not thrilled about being able to see the tank through the blouse, it's still wearable. Actually, the tank that I have on in these pictures adds a neat effect. It kinda reminds me of the Colette Macaron in a way.
The Pendrell is quick and easy to put together and the look is very flattering. I don't think I can wear mine when it's not tucked in though. I need waist definition, and when untucked the blouse is a bit too baggy for my shape.
Doesn't this combination just beg to be taken on a picnic?
