Ok. I think I need help.
Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I am a sewing addict. Seriously. It’s all I think about ever. Every minute of the day. When I’m at work, I would rather be at home sewing. Work is getting in the way of my sewing. It’s really starting to bother me. I’m almost beginning to wonder if I should make a career change. But what would I do? I’m not good enough at sewing to be paid for it and I’m really slow. Hmmm…. Must think about this some more.
Anyway, I took a nap with Jack today and I dreamt about making a jersey skirt with a shirred waist. I had seen one earlier in the day and loved it. After the nap, I thought about the Burda dress that’s been on my mind off and on for the last two months. It’s 105 from May, 2010.
I’ve had this beautiful ombre knit from Metro Textiles in my stash for a few months that I have had no idea how to use. It’s been killing me because I just adore this ombre thing that’s been around for awhile. Wouldn’t this dress look beautiful in an ombre????
Now I just need to decide how to place the ombre. Should I have it start with the lighter blue at the shoulders going to the darker blue at the waist? And if I do that how should I do the skirt? I want the darker blue to make me look slimmer, but wonder if having light blue at the knees would look funny.
What if I have the change of color go from left to right instead for the bodice only and then have it change from top to bottom on the skirt? But then I still have to decide about the light blue at the knees issue.
