It’s done! AND I met my goal of finishing one project this week in spite of the fact that I cut it last weekend and then didn’t touch it again until today. This is a one afternoon dress that comes together easily with excellent results. Next time I may try adding in the flat piping but the dress is super cute as is too.
I want to immediately get started on the next piece. I’m just not exactly sure what that’s going to be. Chase is thrilled about the cats. I still feel kinda badly that I threw all the pattern designer’s advice for selecting fabrics out the window and went with this loud print. But I love love love these Alexander Henry fabrics and, quite frankly, don’t think I could pull them off myself. Lastly, the pattern calls for using a hem facing but I ended up putting in a narrow hem which I think is totally fine. I cannot wait for Chase to wear this tomorrow. I’m gonna tell everyone the wrinkles are from her wearing it. : )
