I finally got down to sewing it! And guess what I made: my own bias tape (using Colette Pattern's Continuous Bias Tape Tutorial)! To make my own piping!
Another little detail shot: can you guess now what it is?
Well guessed, it's a Rooibos!
Mena Test! I inserted a very beautiful invisible zipper (yay for invisible zipper feet!) but I can actually get it on easily without opening the zipper...
I actually wasn't quite in love with this dress as I finished it. My first thought was that it reminded me a bit of my great-grannie's house dresses. My b/f's first comment was "oh, you sewed an apron?!", which didn't really help. I've decided to like it, though. :) Especially since it's the first garment that I sewed on my great-grannie's sewing machine. It kind of feels like fate. :)

Ok, back from the roads of nostalgia... My Ottobre magazines came! And it hasn't even been three weeks!
I have managed to finally trace and cut out the Macaron pattern, though, so I should probably start on that, first.
Ah, summer break, I love thee... So much free time! :)
What is on your sewing table right now?
