Ok, so after last weekend's marathon shirt sewing session, it's back to the Butterick 5638 dress chez Kyle.
Tonight I sewed the belt. I decided to not do the front slit after all, and I don't have enough of the fabric left to do some kind of bias binding. So I made facings. And then this happened (hence the upward):
So I have a lot of tacking to do!
Also I will have to wear a dark colored bra as the armholes are too low. I'm standing at a model-esque jaunty angle.
So here I've pinned the ruffle down in anticipation of tacking, and also taped some buttons on.
Yay or Nay on the buttons? Originally I was loving the buttons but now I'm loving the streamlined look sans buttons?
I believe I see the light at the end of the tunnel for this dress. I might even finish it tmw!!! Could it really be true? I feel like this dress has been in progress for ages....
I believe this is the third rose of the season from my rose bush:
And here are green-eyed susans from the farmer's market.
I bought cherries and blueberries there too. So good. Almost all gone. No pic.
I'm thinking of attending the ASE. Definitely have my eye on a few classes there and attending even though I feel like I'm hemorrhaging cash.
