And so my next project will be my TNT sheath dress, B5147. Are you guys bored yet? 😉
This time I am using a tweed I purchased from Paron’s at the NY Shopping day. I loves me a good tweed. Remember my tweed Burda skirt and how I enjoyed pressing that tweed and what great pleats it made? Ahhhhh…. This tweed is in the mauvish/purple family. I know you all are shocked by this color choice, right?
I cut it out on Monday night, but was sick yesterday. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to it again until Thursday, so this won’t be the quick palate cleanser I thought it would be. But it will still be easy. This time around I plan on making a few more changes to the TNT:
- I added back some of the armscye that I had taken away on the dress for the wedding and will sew the side seam a little tighter right under the arm. If you’ll remember, I showed a little too much fat in that area. I was trying to take out the gaping there, which I did, but then ended up with a bit of a freak show as well. I will just tighten it up at the side seam instead, thank you very much.
- I am putting back some length to the bottom hem. I just feel more comfortable with longer skirt.
- I am definitely keeping the lower neckline though. I like it on me. It’s still office appropriate, although I will most likely wear this with the Burda turtleneck I plan on sewing next.
- I am also going to reduce the width of the front fish eye darts that I increased for the dress for the wedding. Since I know I will be wearing something underneath the dress, I don’t want it hyper-form-fitting.
It feels good to be sewing again.
Happy sewing everyone!
