Progress...

There was sewing over the weekend. I didn't finish anything, so the only pics I have to share are "in progress" shots. You may recognise the pretty floral print and the lime green contrast fabric.
It was slower going than usual because I had to make piping. (I almost never use the store bought, pre-packaged piping. It's never available in just the right color, and why not use what I already have on hand anyway?)


Oh, and by the way, I'm making this. Simplicity 3774, view D, the wrap bodice with cap sleeves and the slim skirt shown in pink on the envelope. My fabric even looks similar to the fabric on the model! Except I'll have piping!

Stay tuned. I hope to have a dress to show later this week.
I hope your weekend was productive!

OOOoooh! Yours will be even better than the one on the model. I can't wait to see it.
