Just a quick show and tell today – so much to do and so little time to do it.
I set myself the finish date of Oct 30th for the last of my Alabama Chanin projects, the brown over pink dress. Well that date came and went, and so did the 30th of November but I’m relieved to say that by December the dress was completed and worn.
The all over pattern was made from a tracing of a piece of Ikea fabric; the shapes stenciled onto the brown outer layer and a running stitch in pink embroidery thread around them all; then the insides of the shapes cut out to show the pink under layer.
At long last the beaded pink T-shirt has a companion.
You have the glamorous setting of my upstairs landing as backdrop to the AC dress due to poor light and freezing cold weather. I could go all out Alabama Chanin and wear the T-shirt, the dress the beaded skirt and the bolero – that lot should keep me warm.
I haven’t a bobble hung yet and only half the gifts bought so guess what I’m doing today instead of sewing?
Keep your cool out there………
