As usual, there is a lot of crafty action going on here, but without anything much getting finished =s
The purple dress that has popped up a couple of times over the past few weeks is almost finished (did I say that last time?), but the very last bit of finishing is on hold while I think over a wee problem.
Relative to my bust (and, well, the rest of me) my under-bust measurement is quite small. Even having sewn a smaller size, and making adjustments for a full bust, the midriff band is just a bit too big.
Being empire-ish, the extra ease makes it look all a bit maternity, but I'm not quite sure yet how to fix it up.
So it has been set aside in favour something else I cut out at the same time - a simple, cute trapezoidy dress with pockets on the front.
Ok, so the picture has come out sideways, and with super weird colours, but you get the idea, yeah? Oh, and there's a much better pic of the fabric here
Again, I'm a bit unsure about the shape (or lack thereof), but I figured I'd give it try, and put in a casing for some elastic either under the bust or at the waist for some shaping if I need.
And of course, despite the lack of finishing of current projects, there's also lots of planning going on.
I picked up this pattern last week, and am planning on sewing up view C or D in this cute red and white fabric (also on sale!) next =)
We're also planning on getting a bit Canadian tomorrow, for the opening ceremony - see you then!
