Continuing on with the "Ye Olde Familiar" series, the next dress will be made from this lace fabric:
I've wanted a lace dress of my own since they started showing up in the designer collections and in the stores earlier this year. I even did a post on it called, "Inspiration" and after looking at quite a few lace dresses, I realized that I didn't want a white one or an off-white one. I desired an antiquey tan one and since the fabric I bought earlier this year isn't really the color I want... I've decided to tea dye it. Now I've used this process before, on the fabric in this dress...
...and it's a simple yet time consuming process that I posted about here. I will work on transforming the fabric this weekend, to get it ready to sew next weekend. While I'm stirring the dye pot, I will continue sewing the last dress and a half of the Peyton series.
These Peyton dresses have been fun to sew since each dress is different due to the fabric selections, as well as, details such as lining or embellishments. They will make great work dresses...even though I ended up not sewing during the last Thunder/Heat game. Too busy screaming at the TV set in the fourth period...*sigh*
So you know where I've been today...finishing up the Peyton series...hopefully pictures of me in the finished garments soon!
...as always more later!
