I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from left:
- Pattern pieces (graded once; altered once)
- Original pattern (read: nemesis)
- Toile of empire dress (second attempt)
Anyway the news of the postponement was such a relief, that I quickly packed away the whole project. And ignored it.
But time marches on; stopping for no-one. Especially procrastinators.
This week I am trying to get back on track and am sewing another toile. The pattern isn't terribly hard, but the bodice - which is made up of 10 pieces - has needed a rather complicated alteration. An alteration which has taken me way out of my depth.
I have all my fingers and toes crossed that the next fitting will go smoothly. I don't know what I will do, if it doesn't!
To be honest, I may very well have a case of craft-gone-bad on my hands. I sense that I will never love this dress, even if it turns out well. If it weren't for the fact that I am sewing it for someone else (and its to be worn on 12 December) it would quite possibly be IN. THE. BIN.
