And a dress for me

dress-boucle-magenta-finished

Nothing from scratch or anything. Finally a redo to make it fit me. This stuff’s like polyester-wool boucle. Amazing texture. Cute lines in the front, too. Can you see the loop under the buttons? That (and the color) is what sold me. 

My pile of things to finish is raging out of control worse than usual. But since this dress mostly has princess seams, it wasn’t a difficult fix. Just lots of pinning and some basting. The sleeves needed shortening too. No big deal. I didn’t touch the hem because the skirt has front pleats. I think for Thanksgiving dinner it’ll work.

I finished it last night, gave it a hand wash overnight and hung the thing to dry today. Photographed all kinds of angles, including the long yarn fished through the zipper so I could get it on and off myself easily while fitting. Also, the little bits of darning the old fabric needed in a few spots.  

Then I managed to delete all the photos, save the one above. 

Damn.
