Speedbump...

7:53 PM 3 Comments A+ a-

I was working on the green polka dot dress last night and I got thisclose to finishing it when I realized I didn't have the right elastic and I'm trying to avoid JoAnn's until
a)I have a good list of all the fastenings I need for my next several projects so I don't have to run back and forth to the store and
b)I get paid because I am broke as joke right now.

So as it stands now the dress is without elastic, so it can't be hemmed properly and I can't decide if I need to move the buttons because I won't be able to tell what the finished bodice will look like. So here's its sad state...



Until I allow myself to go to the fabric store, I will be working on clothes either without fastenings or with buttons I already have. First up, inspired by Threads and Thoughts and Things I Love, I'm going to make a Sorbetto tank top from Colette patterns out of a gray sheet I have and maybe some pink broadcloth. Then we'll see where the wind takes me...

I'm sure this dress is going to look lovely when it's done - those polka dots are wonderful!

Can't wait to see this dress when it's finished! And oh yay!! I'm planning on making the Sorbetto tank from Colette patterns too! :) It seems so pretty, and I have a thrifted vintage bedsheet that I might use.. it is a thin cotton that seems cool enough for summer's heat!
