Annie's pledge: I pledge to get as much of new project, Afternoon Stroll, done as possible.
|Afternoon Stroll from Emma One Sock|
Oh no! Annie throws in the towel! I have a migraine and I'm out of silk organza which I need for interfacing. And even without a headache, there's no way I'm going to find silk organza in Tacoma. Wah!
Let's wait and see how Sis is doing.
While Annie is languishing in headache-land Sis is having a productive day. She says "We can sew vicariously. We are working on Vogue 8559! I am using a black wool double knit for the back and some black sheers for the fronts, sleeves and trim. I'll send some pictures of the fabrics later in the afternoon. I have the body and sleeves done, I'm just pondering my trim fabrics and deciding how I want to use them. I don't think I can get a good picture of it...I might have to come drape it on Dahlia to get a shot. I am trying to practice slow sewing and get everything sewn and trimmed just right. Louise would be proud - my sleeve stripes match.
Sis says: Neck/front band back on and looking nice. I've basted the bottom band on using the large polkadot mesh that I used for the neckband. Hmmm...not sure I like it. Maybe it's a little bit circus?
Meanwhile, Annie, in her disappointment over the day, is looking forward to bed time.
