Amazingly I finished my March To-Do list with a week to spare. This hasn't happened in longer than I can remember! I debated between getting a jump start on my April list or making a dress--the dress won:
|Pattern cutting. My pattern weights are a little expensive (50m prime lens).|
I bought this Anna Maria Horner Fine Feather voile last summer to make a light weight Washi dress, but after my first two Washis (see the dress here and the tunic here), I decided the pattern really wasn't that flattering on my body and went looking for a new dress to try. I finally decided on The Date Night Dress. I'm between a size medium and large, but decided to make the large.
|Reasons every step takes 4 times longer than it should: emergency medical lego evacuation on my cutting table.|
I don't have fabric for the slip yet--any suggestion on what will slide nicely with voile? I saw someone else had used Robert Kaufman Radiance (silk and cotton blend), so I was thinking of trying that, but wish I knew how it would feel with the voile.
|Large washers are on my list for my next hardware store trip.|
My other WIP is this ongoing obsession with making hexies when I am idle. It used to be just during road trips, so I didn't have a lot to worry about, but now I've started making them while watching shows in the evening and they are adding up fast:
I've been using scraps just big enough for a hexie to use...no plan for them, just enjoying the process. So my question to you is this--what do you make with hexies? I'm running out of papers and want to either start using them or sewing them together so I can make more hexies.
