Must be friday, 'cause Shereen's hosting "Sew Crafty Friday" again! http://w8ng4him.blogspot.com/
It looks like this outside. So it's a good day to stay in and sew, scrap, cook--whatever! I've been working on the dress I'm designing. Here are some photos:
As you can see, I need to put darts in the bodice. the shirring is done with alternating rows of black and white floss--by hand. It's going pretty quickly. (Of course, I marked my lines on the inside. I couldn't sew that straight to save my life, LOL!) BTW, I think I'm going to keep it sleeveless. I might make (or buy) a short white linen jacket to wear over it. We'll see--with the weather the way it is today, it feels like it will be forever before it's warm enough to wear this.
Today, I also hope to cut out the pink flannel lining for a little child's jacket I'm making (shown in an earlier post). And...to put the elastic in the pantaloons for the lavendar child's dress (another earlier post.)
