Hello Kittens! Thanks for the lovely comments on my new skirt. I’m so thrilled you all enjoyed our little challenge.
When last I left you, I was working on two dresses from the June 2009 BWOF. I’m done with the first sans the belt and will take photos outside soon. But I’ve only cut out and done interfacing on the kimono dress. Just thought I would show you what I’m doing to make it not be too PINK. For the sleeve bands, I’m using navy to break up the color (maybe with pink topstitching). For the obi. I’m using bias cut tie silk fabric for the main section and pink for the long straps. Hopefully, it won’t all look like an Easter egg exploded.
What I don’t love, is that you can see the facing in the unlined dress. Not a big fan. But, don’t hate it enough to add lining :)
Tonight I’m heading to the big city of NYC for a family wedding. Trena is my date and we’ll be doing some light shopping on Friday. For the Sunday wedding, I may scandalize the West Indian congregants of the SDA church my parents got married in by showing my shoulders and wearing a spaghetti strap dress. I figure if I can’t wear what I want at 33, when can I? Talk to you again on Monday!
