Yes, that's right, finally finished! I have been working on this one dress for weeks! The amazing silky rayon was tedious to work with but a joy to wear. I worked slowly, taking my time with each step and binding the interior seams with rayon seam binding. I am not a patient person, and am a very impatient seamstress, so I am so ridiculously pleased this project is finished! Now I can finally move onto making other things, and I do have oh so many things on my list to make!
I really wanted to finish this dress to wear it with this fabulous flower topped straw hat I found over the winter. When I ordered it I thought it was much smaller but it turned out to be larger and even more HAT (you know, capital H hat) than I thought I'd be! It was so fun to wear, even if it is a hard hat to store. The other debuts I designed this dress around include my wonderful two toned Garnet's from Remix shoes, and the ivory celluloid dress clips. I wanted a dress with a higher sweetheart neckline just so that I could wear it with dress clips! I plan on making some matching fabric bows to wear pinned on too, in addition to hunting down a pair of rhinestone dress clips for more fancy occasions!
Next on my sewing project list is a classic black circle skirt and I can't wait to start as it will be a breeze compared to this fussy rayon! Worth it in the end? I suppose so, it would be good to have a basic LBD for each era!
I hope you all have a great start to the week :)
