I want to end the "old" year like I want to start the new one - SEWING.
It just doesn't seem appropriate to end 2007 with a knitting posting - I'm not really a knitter, remember?! Though I have to admit that I like it a lot and that meanwhile my to-knit-list is almost as long as my to-sew-list (not to mention the stash)!
This dress was finished on Dec. 25th, 5 minutes before 12, meaning 5 minutes before we were leaving for the annual christmas lunch with the in-laws. A few months ago I would have said that I wouldn't be caught dead in something similar...
model no. 111 from the January 2004 BWOF with a raised hemline - a quick sew, if you ask me. AND it goes well with my new boots... ♥
It didn't require any facings or much interlining, the invisible zipper is sewn in in a wink, the lining is bagged and finished through the shoulder seams.
Armholes and neckline of both, lining and outside fabric, are interlined with bias tape so they won't get out of shape.
There's a better picture of the dress on Püppi - light isn't great these days, and indoor shots are almost impossible, and I wasn't willing to go outside sleeveless.
Short dress, short blogentry.
This already was the last posting for 2007. Next time I'll see/read you it will be a new year, though I hope we all will basically stay the same. Happy new year, my friends!
