Yes, I am! I’ve been putting in a little bit here and a little bit there over the last 10 days or so.
I’m working on my HepburnHepburn sheath dress. It’s taking a little more tweaking in the fit than I had hoped it would.
Here it hangs on my dress form. The dress form is actually pretty true to my shape, including the short-waisted back. I was a little miffed with this OOP Vogue pattern in the generosity of ease in the dress. It never fails on a sheath style dress: I measure, cut and then the darn thing needs to be taken in about 4 inches total. What’s with that? At some point I’ll get off my lazy butt and actually cut out a muslin that’s TNT and just use that. Until then, I guess I have no excuse for complaining!!!
I’m going to add the fringe to the bottom of this little number.
The difference in colour is not as horrid as the picture. The dress is actually pretty close to the first picture of the dress, and the fringe was one of those 50% off goodies that I picked up at Fabricland this past weekend. If it’s really horrible, then I guess I can always go down to Mokuba for an ek-ZAKT match. I hope to have this finished up by the end of this week. Stay tuned!
