Did you forget about this dress?
Did you think I did?
I'll admit, it almost fell into a black hole leading up to PR Weekend. It was finished, all but the hem, but I didn't have a belt to wear with it, and therefore, it languished, unhemmed, over my stair rail.
The thrift store strikes again. This isn't the perfect belt, by any means, but it's a good color, I wanted something woven, and it was 50 cents.
Can't argue with that, right?
Notice Lily the sewing room cat sneaking into all the photos. Do you think she realizes that a finished project with photos means that I'll be back in the workroom soon, starting up something else that will keep us in there together?
Right now, I'm tracing. The June issue of Burda arrived yesterday, and while it's not the treasure trove that May was, there were a few things that caught my eye - the knit dress (#109), and one of the Take 1, Make 4 skirts - a plain, unadorned little pencil skirt that I'm going to use for the fringed fabric to go with my Chanel-ish jacket.
Long weekend ahead. Hopefully I'll get out early on Friday and get a few hours of uninterrupted sewing time. There are a few things I need to do on Saturday, and Sunday is mandatory-family-cookout. Monday will be a combination of recovery and sewing.
Is everyone getting ready for a long weekend spent with fabric?
