My next project is my tea gown. I showed you the material and the lace a couple of days ago. I bought tons of that lace knowing that I want to use it but I’m not sure how. I had thought that running it down the front might be nice but it is so wide and straight (no ruffles or pleats)…I just wasn’t sure what I wanted. Then I saw THIS!
It is sort of zig zagged down the front. I like it! I like the pleats too but I doubt I have enough fabric for that. And I think my fabric is too loud a print for that any way. May be if I found a plain print with a matching or complimentary color…. I have to see what the gown looks like all put together first I think.
Do you plan your trims before hand or do you wait and see what it “tells” you once it is done? Some trims are easier to do pre-assembly but I end up worrying that it will look bad or over done and then I’ll struggle to get it off! I buy a few things that I think might work before sewing. Sometimes I don’t end up using them and sometimes I end up heading out to buy more.
