Ask Me about My Radical Feminist Agenda

March is Women's History Month and March 8th is International Women's Day; in the US, a women's strike was held on that day (for those that could).  As someone with a radical feminist agenda (the notion the sexes/genders should treated equally), I participated in the strike and decided to spend my day sewing.  I picked up this fabric from Spoonflower, and its coordinate in pink.  The pattern is New Look 6886, which was the coffee dress, but this time I did views B (gathered bodice with thin straps) and E (bolero).

I did the straps, sash, and bolero in the pink coordinate and the majority of the dress in black (big surprise, I know).  For the bolero, I skipped the sleeves and the ruffle, because I didn't have enough fabric for the sleeves and I didn't think the ruffle worked without the sleeves.  I'll come back at some later point and try the bolero the right way.
