Sketches

These are the sketches of the dresses I've chosen to make for the show:


 Sorry, bad scans, but I hope you get the idea. :-)

I've put together a  pile of yellow and violet colored fabrics and there are enough pieces to make all three dresses. This is really a nice stash busting project, don't you think? :-)

One more upside to my closet fabric hunt is that I've folded and put away my fabric stash. Suddenly there was more room in the closet! Don't worry, the gaps have already been filled with more pieces from my many scrap boxes. When I see them there is more probability of making something out of them than when they are hidden away in some bag or box.


Have a nice Saturday everyone!

  1. I love yellow and violet together. I cant wait to see the finished pieces. I really like the sketches, although I much prefer the skirt design lines of the back view of the second dress over the front view. I think the back lines look more graceful and flattering.

    I know you are going to do a great job. I will continue to watch your progress and will be cheering you on.

    1. Thanks Nadine! I'm very excited about the dresses and, you know, as usual, the patterns turn out to be sligtly different than the sketches as a result of difference in proportions.
