Almost finished!

Woohoo!  We are heading into the final stretch of the sew along!  Tomorrow is the last day for skirt construction, and then we move on to the finishing touches.  It's been really hard to make myself follow the schedule and not skip ahead, but I've done it. I am so anxious to move on to the next step though, delayed gratification is not my strong suit. I'm one to stay up til 2:30 in the morning to finish a project rather than put it down and go back to it in the morning.

I'm really pleased with the way the piping turned out.  I like the separation it gives the bodice and the skirt.  I also added a little band of yellow at the bottom between the letters and the red. True to form though the cautious side kicked into my crafting. The decision making process about adding it was extensive.  I wasn't sure if I should keep it just the simple red or add the yellow pop. Then it was deciding which yellow to use. Then second guessing myself. 

At this point I'm still unsure about the dress overall.  I think a large part of that though is still that it's unfinished.  I have a really hard time seeing the end product when I'm in the process of creating it. And that I haven't seen it on my girl yet.  I guess we'll see in a couple days though!


  1. I love it! The pop of yellow and the red piping are perfect additions!
