It has been incredibly cold and windy here since Saturday afternoon. We were "fortunate" yesterday to reach 53 degrees, albeit with a vigorous wind. My azalea is so bright and cheerful that it belies the weather we've had.
On Friday afternoon, I made another summer dress, this one A-line, from the same eyelet fabric I so loved. My dearly beloved said he's not sure he can tell the difference between this and the princess seamed one. I laughed at him.
I am pleased by both this one and the princess seamed dress. Until 2 summers ago, I couldn't make spaghetti straps!
I cut out the yellow dress for Jeff's graduation, but it turned cold, so Instead I finished the eyelet version of the Daisy Lace dress. My sizing is perfect, and now I need to really hunt for just the right fabric. This fabric does have the right "feel" to it - floaty and light. I'm really pleased with myself for the zippers in all three eyelet dresses. When I was 10 years old, I taught myself the geometry of installing a centered zipper, and I've never done any other type of zipper. Last summer, I made myself learn the invisible zipper installation and lapped zipper installation. I am proud to say that I remembered how to do this without referring to my book! This is a close up of the zipper, which shows a good look at the fabric. One of these days, I'll even get a picture of me wearing the dress.
I hope you all are having better weather than we are. Tomorrow, I'll be bringing you Starbucks on a Plate! See you then!
