VOT Dress - Almost Finished

For someone who was sewing easy-breezy separates during this 3-day weekend...well that just didn't happen!

I did continue to work on the VOT (Variation on a Theme dress) and I wanted to give you an update on the progress of the dress.  Here it is so far:



I still need to:
*add lace to the lining hem and finish it.
*add rayon seam binding to the hem of the dress
*hem the dress
*make a covered button from the trim and add to the collar of the dress

I will not be wearing this dress to work tomorrow.  However, I did sleep alot.  I watched a few movies...loved "The Proposal" btw!  And will finish this up next weekend.

Construction details will follow when I've finished the dress!  And as always...more later!

  11. Great dress! But I have to wonder- don't you have a serger? It'd be both more efficient and stronger to use it to finish hems before you hand-sew them. Even if you use it to attach lace :-).
