Details, details

ImageImageWell, well, well, if my twenties dress isn’t just about ready! One last detail to sew on, iron and…tomorrow I’ll get some help taking pictures with me in it.

I’ve hand sewn more than I usually do which has taken forever, but had the good in it that my hand sewing has improved (unless it’s the other way around).

I needed a patch to cover a waistband that was just too short and used decoration seams instead of sequins in order to match the neck-lining.
