This is a different kind of post for me. Normally, I don’t tell you what I’m working on. It’s not that I don’t want anyone to know or that it’s some kind of secret. It’s because I’m always thinking “what if I mess this up” or “what if I get bored with this and don’t finish it?”. So I’m taking a chance – LOL! I started making this dress about a week ago, and honestly wanted it finished last weekend, but I didn’t quite make my self-imposed timeline. Anyway, I’m almost done.
My version will have 3/4 sleeves. I am determined to use some of my massive stash of fabric. So I had the black fabric (polyester gabardine), but I didn’t have enough of the burgundy/black (poly wool blend) to make long sleeves, so I had to shorten them. So far, so good. I’m trying to finish this sooner than later so I can move on to other things. Maybe by the time I’m done, I can think of some place to go so I can wear it (my anniversary is coming up next month…)!
