|Can you see the color variation in the right skirt panel? I promise it's not just a shadow!|
My friend thought I was crazy. I couldn't deal with it. I ended up lopping off the skirt portion of the dress and turning this into a cropped top.
I stumbled across the coolest challenge today. Actually, I stumbled across another great sewing/craft/style/fashion/diy/amazingness blog Living on pins and needles and she lead me to this FANTASTIC color challenge. The FM100 Hue Test to be exact.
Imaging my surprise and DELIGHT when the first time I took the test and scored a 0!
*Insert confused looking expression here.*
I know it seems like I would want to get a 100, or something closer to what is considered to be PERFECT! But in this case, 0 = PERFECTION!
Hence the uncanny ability to immediately see color variation!
*INSERT HAPPY CHAIR DANCE*
I tried it again later this evening and got a 3. :(
But the worst you can get is a 1520. [*Insert blank stare.*]
Hubby took the same test and got a 103/1520. Not bad at all. But a 0 - 3 is much better. :)
It's because I feel completely vindicated about all the times I argued with friends/family/co-workers/sales associates about matching the color of X and Y. People have looked at me side-eyed when I told them that I could see the differences. BUT I COULD! And now I have proof.
