|oh the shame...|
Its funny, I had this whole rant written down about how much I loathed the current incarnation of the dirndl dress, how it was awful beyond repair, etc.... and then I loaded the picture. I still don't like it, and I think there is a LOT of room for improvement, but I do think I can salvage it. Its shown here with a belt and crinoline, as I, in my despair the other night tried to make it look like anything but a floppy and flappy night gown of doom. (It still kind of looks like one... grumble and groan.)
Happily the jacket is coming together nicely. I'm currently working on tacking down the bust pleats, as the original plan of tacking them top and bottom and allowing the fabric to do its thing ended up in a nasty case of puffy-bust that looked a lot fake and a little tacky .. so.. tacked pleats.
Now, the past three (no, wait, FIVE!) days of me-made-june! (someones been slacking...)
|6/19 - the bedsheet dress|
|6/20 - me drafted and made skirt|
|6/21 the frankenpattern|
|6/22 me drafted 6 panel skirt|
|6/23 TWO outfits! me made shirt, capris and dress!!!|
Yeah, this daily posting thing... not so on top of it. I'm hoping I'll get myself together when June ends and I don't have to worry about all this extra stuff, and getting pictures of my outfits, flicker, etc. It does cut into my sewing time.
