… to like this pattern?
I fear I might be, but there’s something about those angled hour-glass-esque shapes that I love and I think could be very flattering. I’m picturing a stretch cotton in two colours – a neutral and a bright, perhaps.
The pattern immediately reminded me of this really flattering ‘bodycon’ dress that was on How to Look Good Naked (sorry, couldn’t find a picture!) with nude-coloured side panels and a black front and back. It was incredibly flattering on the woman wearing it (in her late 40s, size 14) and I think the panelling on this pattern could work similarly.
Something along these lines:
I’m still not sure, though – is this pattern actually hideous or potentially awesome?
