Today I wore my original Rooibos dress. I made many modifications on this dress to get the fit right and the end result no longer fits me! I am tempted to alter this dress, but I don't think it is worth it for a couple of reasons. One, altering this dress would most likely mean taking the dress apart (all 14+ pieces of it) and recutting it. Two, the fabric (a quilting cotton) has not fared well as a garment. It hangs poorly and the seams appear strained. This may have been its final outing.
