Moo Moo #14 Optimus Moo Moo?

My husband made the reference to Optimus Prime when I asked him for his opinion on this little number. What can I say?  I think it's the two breast pockets ... makes it look like a Peterbuilt?  That's attractive.
In any case, here is how I arrived at this design.  I found instructions on the v-back collar in the text Patternmaking for Fashion Design
I followed it closely and noticed that it came out sort of more enormous than I had first imagined.
All in all, it's pretty fabulous ... I decided to pleat it at the back V to give it a bit more interest. I also employed the elastic in the hem to give it some fun versatility.

Oh, and the Moo Moo is perfect for jumping in against a beautiful blue sky ... in case you were wondering.  Can Optimus Prime do that?               Probably.

Thanks for looking!
