A Roll in The Hague

A pedicure and a new dress! Is there anything better?

I didn't think V1224 would be for me but I love it! Boy, am I thankful for my Pattern Review friends...this pattern runs SO short, everywhere! I lengthened the bodice by 2" and the length by 3". I really like the little blouson effect in the back:

My sister and I met at Trellis on Thursday and got pedicures together. Is there anything more wonderful than a great pedi? In my next life I want to come back as one of the polish namers at OPI. They have a wonderful new orange red out called 'A Roll in The Hague' and my sister used 'A Good Mandarin is Hard to Find'. I feel so sorry for men. They will never experience how fun it is to be a girl!


  1. very nice - I love the fabric. What a great name for nail polish.

  2. I'd say this is your pattern. Everything about it works! .......and the pedi is the icing on the cake. Enjoy!!

  3. Just read your Pattern Review comments:
    " I fear buying just one size anymore...did you have to tweak much?" about the Style Arc. Amazingly enough, I tweaked very little with the fit.
    I ordered on the large size. Style Arc uses a 3/8" seam and I used a 7/8" for the sides and top of the center back for the Leah Lounge.
    For the Elle, I could have altered it down but I had never made fitted, skinny pants before and erred on the side of generosity.
    The patterns are very well cut - promsie. I believe the ELLE and LINDA get the best reviews. Good luck!
