At last I have finished my second ‘It tastes like summer’ dress! Just a foot note in my very first blog, and later the focus of much lamenting due to numerous mistakes, this dress has been floundering on various work surfaces and lurking in to-do piles. But I realised with shock that I am heading to London on Thursday next week to go to a lovely wedding which is to be said dresses debut. If it were done. If not, what in the world would I wear?
This was enough to kick my ass into gear and thus this morning I have put in the new zip, cut out the bodice lining, using of a variety of scraps, sewed lining in place, slip stiched it all, attached shoulder straps and hemmed it!
And Ta-Da! I’m rather pleased with it. The zipper at the very top could have perhaps been a wee bit tighter but it encourages good posture to ensure no unseemly gapes. But otherwise, the unintentional seam to the front looks like it was placed on perpous and the hem it quite possible to most accurate one I’ve ever done!
