Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally got enough time to do the next row of scrappy triangles. As anticipated I like the double row -- but all the seams in such a lightweight fabric will require some sort of backing to keep it from lumping up. Due to my killer sway-back, me thinks I will need to turn some of those squares into trapezoids (use your x-ray vision!) but otherwise, its coming together nicely. (Except, with the proportions, its starting to look like it ought to be a dress, instead of a top -- but I really don't have enough fabric -- just doing real straps is going to be pushing it -- perhaps another project....)

And, MMM update from yesterday and today.

In both cases, just the skirt. (oddly enough, both are actually self-drafted skirts I originally made to be floor length and have since shortened) Anyhow, talked about the brown one last friday, but the purple is another of my lovely batiks :) I've always thought the patterns looked like chromosome pairs, so I tend to think of this as the DNA skirt. Its a regular old six panel skirt with an invisible zip closure.

  1. It looks great, and you were right, better with the defined waist. Curse you people with actual waists! That would never work on me. ;)


I love to hear from people :)
