Happy New Year everybody!
I feel I need deadlines for my sewing, so I decided to finish the Dirndl in the next two weeks because then I'll go out dancing and I love the idea of combining the traditional but dark Dirndl Dress with high boots and stuff and crash a goth party.
Love the idea. LOVE.
And I LOVE the colour scheme of this dress!
When trying it on I just noticed a funny coincidence - it's got the same colours as the Curvy Kate Tease Me Bra in Purple/Black which I just reviewed in my german bra-blog kurvendiskussionen.
So, what happened so far?
I finished the bias progress. Finally. I finished the top, sewn top and skirt together.
Had some problems with the overlapping parts of the skirt though, but I won ;)
Maybe because I had such great help.
I chose buttons for the dress, better, a lot of friends helped me decide which ones to take.
I just couldn't!
In the end I took the ones on the far left and could try the dress on *love*
Now I've already sewn the button holes, and there's not a lot more left:
Sewing the buttons onto the top, adjusting the length, getting rid of all the thread ends, adding to clip-buttons to the overlapping skirt opening.
