Ok, so I'm thinking about taking a long weekend to go to the beach. What color says beach more than aqua blue?
This time it took me 2.5 hours. I cut the 10 this time at the shoulder seam to bring everything up a bit; I wound up sewing that in a 3/8 seam so I could have cut the 12. Along the sides it was 14 grading to 16. I futzed a bit with the armholes--that is what took so long. Next time I will leave the armholes as-is.
Here you can see some detail:
I wore two different ribbons in the photos--they were cut to almost 2 yards in length.
Otherwise it's the same little black dress I made on Thursday night! And this helped me get over yesterday's cowl neck struggles (I think it does look ok after all).
I have no idea where all my time went today. I spent a lot of time staring at my stash and some time cleaning up my sewing room. I cut out another dress to make tmw, but it's not this one. I want to make this one again in brown. :)
