Here’s some actually new projects I am in the midst of…
Because what girl doesn’t dream of having the perfect red dress to pull out of the closet on a dreary day?? Well at least one… me!
So far I have cut it all out. I found a semi decent red cotton. I’m not thrilled about it but we will see how it goes. I definitely wanted a cotton or light weight fabric so I can actually wear this as a day dress. I ended up also cutting a flat lining because the cotton is pretty thin. Here what I got so far.
I have all the darts marked and pinned along with marking all my notches and such. I think I’m going to try using horsehair braid in the hem for a full skirted look.
The other item I’m working on is transforming this number.
Im using Butterick 5486 to make this oversized skirt I got for a dollar into a little polka dot dress. The middle view is the version I’m making.
My version may end up shorter as I simply don’t have that much yardage but I’m excited.
What are you working on these days??
