Giving up!

I’ve been messing around with the royal blue Simplicity 1892 from the previous post.  I think I’ve decided there’s no way to save it.  On me, it looks even dumpier than on the dress form.  That high neckline does nothing for me and because of my short waist, the midriff band makes me look even short than I am.  I’m not going to finish something I’ll never wear.  I have too many things in my closet that I finished just because I was so close to finishing, but haven’t worn.  I’ve gotten over the need to do that.  My only regret is the fabric.  With money being tight, I hate to toss fabric like that.  I think I might be able to get a nice pencil skirt out of it.
