First, I really want to say a sincere thank you to everyone who has left me comments on my last three garments. I know I read dozens of blogs and don’t always have time to leave a comment. So, the fact that you took time out to do so is pretty awesome.
I leave for China a week from Wednesday and wanted to take one new dress with me. I settled pretty quickly on Vogue 1086. I have two pieces of wax print left from my Ghana trip a few years ago. I wanted something I could tour in, but also I could wear to a meeting or dinner.
I’ve made a touch of progress since this photo 🙂 I now need to add the armhole binding and hem the dress and the cotton batiste lining. Which, I am pretty sure I can do in one good night after work.
If that happens, I have one more weekend of sewing. Which, I may shoot for a twill straight skirt or a khaki jacket. I know, crazy right?
