Remember this chiffon I mentioned about a month ago?
I just couldn’t picture the dress even though I knew I wanted to use Simplicity 4070. (view D)
The other day I was just looking on eBay for the heck of it, and found a dress that made me finally imagine what the dress could look like.
This is another White House Black Market dress it is $55 (used) on eBay. Because of the similar style and colors I can picture the dress a whole lot easier now.
I will probably make it in July for a pattern stash contest on http://sewing.patternreview.com/. I think fuschia will make a good pop of color for shoes and maybe a boloero.
I started by sewing the other back neckband peice to the one sewn on the shirt, leaving enough of an opening to turn it.
I turned it right side out.
I will hand stitch the opening later.
I gathered the front, and sewed on the front neckband.
I’ll admit that I pinned the neckband together and tried it on. It will be wearable but if I make it again I will be making a few changes.
I think he’ll be happy now!!
My husband’s knit work hat was starting to come apart.
I stitched accross it so it wouldn’t fray any farther.
I used the thread I already had on the machine but it hard to see and is on the inside of the hat so it will be compleatly hidden.
I know I know Easter is just a couple of days away. But at $1.11 per yard, and being enough for part of my daughter’s Halloween costume I decided to buy the just over 2 yards remaining on the bolt.
I’m not sure I can combine vampire and pirate into a “vampirate” like she wants but this will definitely work for a vampire.
I stamped these chevrons using a Bundle Monster nail stamp. (forgot which one)
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in wet cement and twisted pink.
I also used my new nail stampers they work better than my old ones did. I will have to try the reverse stamping technique again soon.
I didn’t do much today, I sewed the hems and armholes.
It’s hard to see in the pic but I used a double needle.
Then I sewed on the first back neckband.
I still have to figure out the rest of the neckband peices and the best way to attach the front neck band.
