i took this pic when i thought i was 90% done [ie facing and shoulders complete, waist and sides sewn together]. another 1.5 hours after finishing cutting pieces. in between pics i bought new lightbulbs [daylight instead of warm] and figured out how to better dry my poufy hair
oh yea. and i added pockets. AWESOME friggin pockets. the other pic is just to show more of my mad gathering skills even though theyre mostly hidden by the damn collar.
for magical sewing piece #2 [also a victory] i have here a dark teal eddie bauer size small ponte awkward midi dress with a stain and a slit. compare that if you will to the unknown brand size 16 petite. i digress. [though it is microsuede and $2.50 worth of amazing]
so i busted out my gathering skills yet again and made a triple peplum. which to my chagrin i recently found is pronounced pep-lum. not pea-plum. eeeeh.
this pic is to show the dress from a more flattering angle.
