Zipper Dilemma and Some Excitement
I don’t want to jinx anything but I have to tell you how excited I am about the dress (NL6821) I am making for Katie. I am using some cotton voile that feels so luxurious as I sew. Who knew that cotton could feel luxurious?! It looks so special already and I have only completed the bodice. This was going to be just an ordinary little girl’s twirly dress, but it might just turn out to be a special occasion dress. It’s so cool how a fabric can make or break a garment. I can’t wait to see how the rest of this turns out. See pictures below of the bodice thus far. Did I mention I was excited????
BUT, I have a zipper dilemma. When I went to P&S Fabrics last night to get the thread and zipper, I thought I had purchased the right color, at least under their flourescent lights. But when I was home, the zipper looked magenta rather than purple and was a lot more saturated in color than the print or solid fabric is. What to do???? So, I thought I would turn to you, gentle readers, for your wonderful suggestions.
I have lined up several different colors of zippers below. Let me know which works if any or if I should go back to the store to find another one. In order of appearance: ivory, pink, beige, magenta, blue/purple. I have three different light settings in the photos so you can see how it looks in different lights.
So what’s the verdict? Which zipper should I use? Or should I go back to the zipper drawing board?
In other sewing store news, P&S Fabrics is moving across the street from their current store in 6 days. The new store is beautiful (or so said someone I bumped into at the current store).
Happy sewing everyone!
