Sneak Peek: NL 6067

2011 December 8
by elizabeth_admin

It was a race to the finish last night folks!  And truth be told, I still have a bit of hand stitching to go on this puppy, but basically, my dress is done.  There were a lot of opportunities for perfection last night, i.e., things that needed to be unpicked and resewn, but I am just so darn pleased with my dress. 

Here’s a sneak peek of the obi belt.  It was my first piping insertion (no lewd jokes please), and I am calling it an unqualified success!

Full review of the pattern and pictures of the dress on me tomorrow!  I am wearing the dress tonight to a work holiday dinner!

    Well, I think if you can call something an ‘unqualified success’ that’s a pretty happy place to be!

    Oooh, I can’t wait to see the finished dress! The fabric is so pretty. I have to admit my few experiences sewing silk haven’t been so successful so I’m kind of scarred off now. Did you have any trouble with your fabric?

    Waiting with bated breath! Love the obi and everything you’ve shown us thus far on the dress!
