Then I went and got SEVEN new bobbins. Writing this I am realising I am just like Petike, hehe. Such a small thing making me so happy. Then I went to the cheap fabric store and.... they had this pink and red plaid fabric!! Exactly perfect for this contest! Now I don't have to try and match two separate fabrics, or pink fabric with red trim or anything :)
And now I'm listening to Crystal Castles which always makes me happy and the best thing of all - I have almost a whole day 'til I have to work next! Lots of time for making stuff!
Here is the pink top I talked about in the last post:
It's corduroy and so far just basted together. I don't know if I should make it a lot shorter with a curved hem, or leave it the length it is now. Any ideas?
I was going to add boning to the seams but then I think of my boned dresses and how they hang in my wardrobe, neglected. I like boning in theory. I even have a couple of metres of it lying around. But then, when I wear something that's boned I just feel so restricted. Maybe it wouldn't be such a problem if it was boning combined with stretch fabric?
And the red dress:
This is one is stretch satin. Does it need to be tighter or looser to get rid of the wrinkles?
