I made this dress for last week’s Tickled in Pink challenge.
The dressmaking (and loving) story is told here.
This is my third time making this dress style (pleated wrap bodice with midriff + dirndl skirt) and it certainly won’t be my last as I think I’m finally done fussing with the fit.
Hope you dig it half as much as I do.
It’s a beautiful day and I’m trapped at my desk. I should be spending my lunch break outdoors with a sandwich and a park bench. Instead, I’m daydreaming and blogging about sewing.
Makes sense that my head would be filled with fabric and seams…this is the week I chose to return to weekly sewing after kicking off Operation Sew Balanced (something I’ll be continuing a while longer). I’ve been working on a garment for this week’s “Tickled Pink” Challenge and have been steadily focused on it all week.
Rise. Sew. Job. Sew. Sleep. Repeat.
Now, of course, there’s little bits of life in between sewing and working, but the consistent return to sewing and steady progress (vs. a marathon weekend of sewing in pajamas with only take-out menu reading breaks) has been nice for me. I should finish it in time to post it on Friday.
Now, if I my brain would just stop virtually installing zippers, I could get back to work, wrap up my corporate duties, and do some live action zipper installations 😉
