In between catching up on the laundry and grocery shopping, I have been spending the remainder of my vacation in the sewing room. I have completed the 1872 Lilac Dreams bodice! Yeah me!
The white part has little white buttons running up it that the glare washes out but I was making myself crazy trying to get the fabric to not look blue and didn’t notice I had washed out the white part. Me thinks I need a better camera.
I think I may need to tack that bow down a bit more. It seems to be sitting a bit cockeyed.
That is how it is supposed to sit.
In addition to finishing the bodice, I have cut out and sewn two skirts a la assembly line style. There is a purple skirt to go with this bodice and a blue one for another project. I’m at the hand sewing stage now. They both might get some trim but I’m going to wait and see how they look with their bodice and over skirt first. They might not need anything…especially the purple as the pattern it pretty wild on its own.
