To Save a Dress

I scored this bad boy at Housing Works warehouse. It doesn’t geot quite right, but I figured I could do something with the lace. But I just had a brilliant idea. I can use the lace on one project and the lining and zipper on another. Stay tuned while I start ripping seams!



Tied Up

Decided to take another crack at the BBQ maxi dress intended for wedding weekend. Lots of seams to unpick!


I did finish another UFO (unfinished object) though! More to come on that!

What You Missed

I realize it’s been a while since we last saw each other.  Some of you may be thinking, “Look D- you ditch us and then come back and start blogging up a storm, like nothing ever happened.  Whatev!” (or however you would say it.)   Well, here’s a sample of things I’ve been doing since I last saw you.

Final Verdict

Well, I’ve nearly finished the shirt, but it is a little tight in the neck.  So I have a little more finagaling before it’s really ready to wear.  But should a robber should come steal all the other clothes in my closet tonight, I can certainly wear it tomorrow.  So, I wouldn’t call it a gold medal performance, but definitely a bronze!

An hour in

I’ve been hard at work for an hour. The pattern pieces are cut out and so is the fabric. Still deciding if I’m going to add the pretty lace design to the front. Might have to pick up lace in that case.
