I have a list of projects that I want to create, and while searching for dress fabrics I ran across Amy Butler's "Sketchbook Spring". It was love at first sight. But I was afraid it would be a bit too busy for a dress and decided to use it for another Colette Laurel. This time I made version four, the top. What's nice about the top is there is no zipper! Woo hoo! I'm still not brave (or patient) enough to create my own bias tape so I found this wonderful citron-y color that really pops against the turquoise background.
And as usual, my pictures look like they were taken by a drunk monkey. I don't know how they ended up all slanty. You would think an artist/seamstress/creator would have a teensy weensy bit of photography talent. Nope. Not here. And every spot of my house is full of stuff...so there isn't a room with a background that isn't busy.
I have a few more finished projects that I have to get into posts, but right now I am taking a small break from sewing. I seem to have developed some painful arthritic-like symptoms in my hands and wrists. Therefore I am giving them a rest to see if the swelling, stiffness, and pain decreases. If not, I'm going to ask my doctor for a skeleton transplant....
