I arrived home Wednesday mid morning. The rain had stopped and by evening the sun was shining. Are we over the monsoons we had? I doubt it. It will probably shower some over the next couple of days.
Prior to going to the fashion show, I had a chance to go to the community’s Fabricland. Nothing but outdoor fabric and some cottons were on sale. To kill time, I roamed around snooping on all the shelves and stands. I found two pieces of cotton I really liked to use for meshwork grocery bags.
The red, green and print will be woven together and then I will use some of the print in the bag.
The second print I bought is the peacock I used in a rodeo shirt. I love it so much that I want to use it in a bag using meshworks. I need to buy royal blue and yellow cotton.
After lunch, I went down to the sewing room to fool around. I thought I would interface the yokes on the skirt of the dress. I got that done and then continued putting the pieces together. Soon the front of the skirt was done.
The pieces were well behaved and the yoke was easy to put onto the skirt. Today I will do the bodice front and sew it to the skirt. Then it is ready for bling.
The back yokes are interfaced ready to be put onto the skirt pieces. I am still thinking about it as the pattern shows leaving the seam allowance open for a kick pleat. That will show leg when walking. If I leave it open, I will add another piece to make a pleat/godet.
