My dress is about halfway sewn up and I need to think about a lining. This is the underlining. Rayon Bemberg? What do you use for a summer dress to be worn on a hot day?
My dress fabric is this silk-linen blend that Archie found for a little nap. The camera noise woke her up, but only briefly. We call her Chip-Monkey because she moves very quickly, like a chipmunk.
Very happy to be into day 2 of the new fiscal year 2011. I worked a 21 hour day yesterday and, well, frankly I feel pretty macho about it. LOL. For what it's worth. I have worked out how to pull an all-nighter and work hard the next day and keep sane. Now, for a Three Day Weekend, oh YAY. And I ate some Ben & Jerry's ice cream tonight and it.was.good.
Next time I will write about the construction steps of this dress. Working from a muslin is way different than what I am used to and I am making it up as I go along.
As you can see, I pushed the machine out of the way and spread out to do all the hand-basting of the underlining to the fabric. It is soooo relaxing! I do love me some hand-sewing. That was quite a few days ago and I look forward to diving back into this project now.
Lining. Need to get some lining ...
