  3. LMAO!

    Even the skirt can't resist the Oona Booty. It's a force of nature.

    I must admit, my first thought was "how high is the slit?" :D

    1. HA! does the trophy come in the form of a heavyweight belt? all blingy and flashy and totally not subtle? i would humbly wear it.

  11. LMAOOOOOO!! AHAHAHA! I thought the big flower on one of my cheeks in my Sew Weekly dress was bad!

  12. I-can't-breathe-I'm-laughing-so-hard. The Look on your face got me.

  13. hehe :) it's a really cute skirt anyway!! Love it Oona, thanks for the laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my word. But wow, I love this fabric... gorgeous!! I hope you still wear it, ass vortex or not. I was also looking for a slit in the back.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The same thing happened to me! Check it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lindsaypindsay/6034354508/in/set-72157626373185018.

    I wore it anyway. To a wedding. I figured they just further showcased my rockin ass.

    1. yours is way less upsetting! what a pretty dress-- i'm glad you didn't have to shop on your trip :)

      Delete
  16. LOL! But if it makes you feel any better, been there, done that. That whole pattern placement thing can be a real bitch sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is stand up comedy with front row seats. The crack that swallowed ikat...I think there's a movie plot or commercial tagline in there somewhere. Love the maxi skirt, Oona. Devoured motifs and all ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. ROFLMAO! Oooh... that's just... well... it's... um... dang. That's some mighty unfortunate pattern placement. At least you've got enough fabric to make a mini skirt or something. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, I am so sorry, Oona, but I have just about killed myself laughing at the unfortunate Ikat placement. Oh, my!! I have no doubt that this fabulous skirt will be recreated into something that knocks our socks off (not like this version didn't, but perhaps not in the way you had hoped? LOL!)

  20. OONA, UNCLENCH!!!!!!
    heheheheh I'm 12.
    I can't say I've done this sort of thing with sewing, but I'm FANTASTIC at getting small circular foodstains riiiiiiiiight on the nippular area of my tops. It's like my superpower.

    1. I KNOW RIGHT?!!!! and it's not even in my ass!

      i bet simon loves your superpower.

  21. Poor Oona. Is that skirt really getting eaten up? This might sound old-fashion, but a slip might help that out. What are you going to do?

    ReplyDelete

    1. you know, this might be where the thong gets us all in the end. pun intended. maybe i'll try a slip. and some heavy interfacing. an iron hoop skirt.

      Delete
  22. That is some awesome pattern placement!

    ReplyDelete
  23. it takes a brave and special woman to share that with the world and be good humored enough to laugh about it--i LOVE it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bahahhahahah! But how can the skirt resist, it's such a nice butt, the skirt just wants to be close to you! Don't hurt the skirt's feelings, Oona, it's might react badly.

  25. Oh you cheeky girl, thanks for the laugh.

  26. You just gave me my first deep chuckle of the day. I do love that fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ass pants! You still look like a fox x

    ReplyDelete
  28. I thought they were culottes! HaHa!! I'd still wear it - I mean, what the hell - sometimes an ass just has to be a vortex... Plus that fabric is AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ok, laughing SO hard over here. That was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  30. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Although, that skirt is so ridiculously awesome, I'd probably wear it anyway. And also CAN YOU BLAME THE SKIRT FOR WANTING TO HUG ON YOUR ASS? For serious!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the ikat print! Ass diamonds or not :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was also expecting a slit, but this is unfortunate. A prime example of why I tend to avoid prints!

    ReplyDelete
  33. HAHAHAHA! I can't see it from my house. Hope that consoles you.

    1. i believe you can probably see this from jupiter.

  34. hehe! It's a pretty print though. Try a nice stiff drink and see if that helps with the unfortunately placed diamonds problem--I promise it will. ;) rofl.

  35. I just choked I was laughing so hard - sorry! I wanna know what Ruggy's reaction was!

  38. I've always thought you were hilarious, but this may top everything else. By the way... I don't know what kind of squats you're doing but my clothes have never hugged and thanked me like that.

    1. Thanks for making me laugh today! And for being so brave to post it ;)

  42. This print is definitely unique and the position of the diamonds makes it quite the humourous item:) Funny post hee hee.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hooo hooo! That is too funny! Maybe it's time for a refashion? But I think you have the confidence to pull it off!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I looked at the first pic and thought, what could be wrong its pretty, love the fabric. Then I saw the last pic and I laughed, not at you but with you as a woman with a shapely behind as well, I know what you are saying.

    1. but please, you MUST laugh at me. it makes all the hard work on this fail worthwhile!

      (and when you have bootays like ours, you must have a fail every once in a while. else all the bootay-less gals would rise up and come at us with daggers and such.)

  45. Holy crap holy crap holy crap!!!!!!! That's truly AMAZING.

    If I was you, I'd rip the waistband off, resize it to fit above my chest (maybe slap a little elastic in the back), belt it at the waist, and wear it as a strapless dress! That would probably be enough to change up the, ahem, weird pattern placement. I've restyled weird elasticized maxi skirts into summer party dresses a few times and it's SUPER satisfying.

    1. That's an awesome idea, you can't wear it like that - I won't let you. Beautiful fabric. Thanks for the best belly laugh of the week.

  46. you are hilarious. I love this whole outfit - the color, the patterns, the combination of the two. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hahahahaa TOTAL GENIUS! And totally hot. Flaunt those diamond butt cheeks.

    ReplyDelete
  48. OK, I say flaunt it! I can totally understand why you won't wear this, but I still think it's a great piece. The diamond placement is charming. And, in fact, if you just raised the diamonds up a bit, they'd give you artificial perky-bum.
