Sorry to disappear like that, but there hasn't been much sewing around here lately. Actually none. This dress is the last thing I made (the day before christmas of course). It's a simple enough dress, but the gathers were a royal pain in the butt. Velvet isn't one of the suggested fabrics for a reason. It never gathered enough--the fabric was just too thick--and I had to put the button waaaaay over so it would stay up on her shoulders. And that is button, not buttons, because I got the flu and five button loops and five covered buttons just seemed like a lot more than I could handle. But she wore it to christmas dinner and was just the cutest (and that was really the point right).
I will be back Monday with the Mobile Swap 2009 sign up. Last year was a huge success and a lot of fun to boot. Check out last year's flickr group just to see the amazingness and check back next week to sign up!
