Mom: "Maybe you've thought of this, but you could just wear a tank top under it." Me: "...yes...." Problem solved! Not going to remake it, just going to iron it properly and make sure the facings are attached alright and the dumb brocade won't fray. #goodenoughforgovernmentwork #hellaprofesh #partyready #diypartydress #isewmyownclothes
Sewed two dorky Christmas things this week! Just finished a holiday Linden sweatshirt with Christmas hedgehogs, and earlier this week I made a candy cane Tate top (modified to tone down the racerback, which isn't my best look, and to replace the zipper with a button). Both were nice and easy and came out well - plan to make more soon! #lindensweatshirt #isewedthetatetop #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear
Relaxing sick day. Especially moments later when Ginny graduated from aggressively licking my face to attacking my hands.
The good news is the fabric I chose for the top looks awesome. The bad news is Vogue wasn't kidding about needing a separating zipper, and I don't have one. Basted in what I had just to be sure, but no dice. Can't face Jo-Ann again right now, so on to other projects. #notionsfail #onwardandupward #v1486 #voguepatterns #diypartydress
