I have been working on this dress for a while now. It is not a difficult project, but a bit time consuming for me - with all of the pleats and topstitching. I am very happy with the final product and will be doing a full review on Pattern Review to cover the specifics.
I feel very retro-luscious in the green stretch suede material from my stash.I believe the fabric was purchased in LA at the FIDM scholarship store for $1/yard. Score!
I also have started a skirt this weekend, but am having a wee bit of trouble with the heavy elastic for the waistband. I am putting it aside until I decide what I want to do....I also set aside my Burda dress. I just want to be happy and excited about my sewing projects, so I'm letting go of the pressure to just finish, especially if I won't end up wearing it in the end.
What will be on my machine next then.....well I have already ordered 2 types of stretch denim for the sew along Dawn is thinking about putting together on PR. I received a gift certificate to Fabric.com for Christmas, so it was a great to use it to splurge on 2 colors and thickness variations. I received an email from PR saying my Jalie pattern has been shipped. Nice!
Tonight I will either cut a pattern for capris or another dress....we'll see.
