Pile of Shame progress

May 31, 2009


Remember this dress, that I made up a toile for?

I was making it for a wedding in September 2007. It has been rotting in the Pile of Shame for 1.5 years. Can’t remember why I loathed it too much to finish… I think the scale of the fabric print is too medium (ie not small or big enough). Plus it’s just a bit ho-hum.. I loved this fabric so much but made up it’s just a bit blah. But, the frock is exquisitely lined in silk/cotton with French seams and it should not have been ignored so. All it needed was the hem. So I dunnit.

Have dug out another two frocks from the Pile of Shame for finishing. Soon, my pretties.
