Progress… I promise!

15 Sep

Woops, didn’t mean to dissappear like that!

I had a few days up in Edinburgh at the end of the fringe festival, then my BFF and former roomate from Vancouver was visiting and ended crashing here for 2 weeks rather than the few days I thought. Which, don’t get me wrong, was freaking awesome because she’s the coolest chick, just not so conducive to sewing.

And, now my camera charger has gone walk-abouts, so no photos but I promise I made headway on my rooibos yesterday. In fact, it’s one of those patterns that looks like it would take way longer than it really does – even when it involves a first attempt at piping (and leopard print piping at that!)

So instead here is my artists poor (knock off) photoshop impression of the finished dress.

      x2, I can’t wait to see what the piping looks like too! It should be a nice subtle way of using animal print 🙂

    Love the color combination! My mojo is MIA so I’m certainly NOT pressuring you silently, LOL!

    So you piped all the seams? Vertical and horizontal? Wow! I went through a piping mania right before the disappearing mojo thing where every other project was with piping.
