After completing my course at the London College of Fashion, the best advice my tutor gave me was to go home now and design a dress. I did. Made a paper pattern and cut it out of fabric. It sat in my room in the roof for months before I did anything further with it.
This week was the perfect time to get it out and sew it together. I forgot how beautiful this fabric looked together. Trouble was... I'd forgotten what look I was going for so was slightly perplexed when I saw that the back had a big slit up it. Was it cut with intent of a back fastening? Was it cut on the selvedge instead of the fold? Nevertheless, it came as a surprise and I'm now thinking button back fastener.
I also had planned to fully line this dress, but the cotton is very light and the lining would have shown though. Instead I have just lined the breast. Age 4.
Decisions: Binding around the neckline and armholes. Red or brown? Brown sounds bland and red is going to jazz it up a bit. What do you think? Did I just answer my own question?
The WWW lost two pounds this week!! First day in the hot seat was extremely rewarding. I loved being the one to reward weight loosing women with their pound loss. Faces of glimmer after a week of hard work far outweighed the faces of shame for those that cheated here and there. Tip of the week: let a bad day just become a bad day not not roll into a bad week. *to myself: Take your own advice love, you'll go a million miles*
