Labels and a dress
I know you’re all waiting with breath held to hear if I finished my dress last night, right? 😉
Well, I did!!! I don’t have any pictures to show you yet though. Sorry! I finished at 12:30am and was just too tired to take any construction pictures or pictures of the dress on me in my late night disheveled state. Overall, I am pleased that I finished the dress. The “design feature” at the back neck bothers me a little and I’m concerned that I while this is definitely wearable, all the changes I made to it to get it to a wearable state aren’t really transferable to the next iteration since I will be starting a size smaller to begin with. What that means is I will have to muslin all over again. And after all the work that went into this version, I think I am exhausted by this pattern. All my work was for a double knit fabric too. A woven would be an entirely new process. Just thinking about it makes me tired.
I promise to have pictures of the dress tomorrow.
I will leave you with the following visions instead, my labels! They finally came and I love them!!!!
They look fantastic and oh so professional. I enthusiastically recommend Worldwide Label on Etsy.
Curiously, I did not sew in a label into my new dress. I did not think the dress worthy because of my “design feature”. I guess I’m going to be extremely picky about what garments are label worthy. Interesting, no?
Have a great sewing weekend everyone!
