A very happy and blessed Good Friday to you all! It’s a very good Friday for me, because I am almost through with Easter dresses! Yay! No midnight sewing for me on Saturday night!
I have not done an update in forEVer, I know. I have been very busy figuring and sewing and crocheting. Not a lot of x’s being crossed right now, I’m excited to get back to that tonight and tomorrow.
So here’s a sneak peek at oldest’s dress – I cut the top pieces yesterday and sewed them together, but did not get them fitted on her after school. So I will attack her when she walks through the door and finish this baby! The crocheted piece is going to be a strap-sleeve (there’s one for the other side, too) – it will fall gracefully over her shoulder. She’s 8 now, so she needs a little bit of a different look from her sister. The skirt is the same butterfly fabric – it’s a circle skirt, so I’ll attach it after I figure out where I’m putting the closures and hem the edges of the bodice. It’s all about “easing” with these dresses. 🙂
And here’s a look (okay, more than one look) at my dress! I’m super-thrilled that I made myself do this between the girls’ dresses, otherwise it would not have been finished. Some of you may recognize this print as the knit I got on clearance last year? I was in agony over cutting this, sooooo scared I was making a mistake. After some Facebook reassurances, I did it, and I’m happy with it. Yes, it’s a horizontal print. No, I didn’t look that closely when I bought it. But it also has a vertical ripple in the pattern. And I think the brown lines break it up enough that it doesn’t look THAT horizontal. I’m also cracking up at the exact match of the brown knit to my curtains.
