Still, I got done some things. ..
1. Wardrobe cull: check. I guess I could have been more thorough, but I'm saving that for a time when my teeth don't chatter while I try on clothes in front of the mirror. Swap party and flea market day are planned for May!
2. I started on my Crêpe dress! Ah, the instructions are a dream! (Especially compared to Burda 3477, which is also a curren WIP). Tracing took me a while but I wanted to save the pattern. I sewed up a bodice muslin yesterday and altered the darts a bit. I hope it'll do...
(This is before the altering of the darts. I also suspect I'll have to let out the waist a bit and shorten it by half an inch. I wonder what that'll to do the waist ties...)3. Burda 3477, a lined Princess seam dress in turquoise wool (and maybe another version in brown/tan plaid), is going to amount to my winter sewing. I know, winter's almost over (I wish!) but the two dresses will probably keep until mid-spring at least. Anyway, I remember now why I've never lined anything yet. Slippery, slippery fabric... also, the instructions are atrocious. My books haven't really helped me out yet. Must google some more. Also: tracing was one hell of a job. Why exactly are the lines green on green?!? But: the pattern was picked up for a dress for my mom and she's another size, so I had to save it.
4. I'm also daydreaming about handmade jewelery involving bangles, buttons, fabric scraps and other things, but that can wait until after my dresses are done. I think.
What are you working on right now?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I leave you with a taste of spring (yes, tulips are my favorite flowers...)
