Not a whole lot going on in the sewing room this weekend. The red, white and navy blouse and I aren't on speaking terms at the moment due to a collar error that I have just admitted to making but have not yet committed to fixing. It'll happen, just not yet.
And it's Saturday, which generally means there's enough stuff to do in the hood that I can avoid a difficult project if I want. This morning was the farmer's market, a flea market, 3 porch sales, and then we hit the gym. I'm finally seeing a teeny, tiny bit of movement from all the gymming lately, so I'm on a roll.
There is hope for the blouse to be finished, because as you can see I made up with the cherry dress. I wore it to work yesterday with my red shoes. While I'll be the first to admit it's a cute dress, I'm a little surprised that it got more compliments than probably the last 2 weeks worth of clothes put together.
Found out one thing about the cherry dress: you cannot be in a bad mood in this dress. Every time I looked down at it I cracked up. Nothing wrong with a dress that makes you smile, right?
I've also spent a good bit of time out back in the garden today. We got our first red tomato! Honestly, I feel like throwing a party in its honor. (Though what kind of party is it when the guest of honor also gets to be part of the appetizer?)
The other photo here was the neckline of a co-worker's top yesterday. She was totally weirded out at being photographed, but I thought it was a very simple but effective way to dress up a neckline. All it is basically is a tube turned right side out, ironed flat, pleated, and sewn down the middle. It had nothing structural to do with the top at all. I'm feeling a need to try to duplicate this.
