Anyway enough about that dress, I have today off and hope to complete it for a reveal on Friday. It requires a lapped side zipper and I have never done one. So I want to do it while I am fresh this morning. Then all I need to do is hem it. Okay a sneak peek if I must:
On another sewing note. Tuesday I eagerly awaited the fabric for my MOD dress and was thrilled when I saw a package in the mailbox, only to pick it up and know without even opening it that there was NOT 3 yards of fabric in it. After opening it my hunch was correct, there was only 1 yard. The order had been read wrong. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh! I quickly e-mailed the seller back and she said she would refund my money and I could keep the fabric, as she only had 1 1/2 more yards of it and I needed 3. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I quickly pulled out the pattern and figured out that I could manage the dress with the 2 1/2 yards and hopefully, fingers crossed, she is getting the other 1 1/2 yards to me. She was very apologetic and I eagerly await the rest of the fabric. I LOVE IT. It is a very soft and flowing cotton and I am so looking forward to making this dress. As you read this, on Thursday, I am off to find the perfect chiffon to go with the dress. Have you voted for the shoes?
With the heat hovering around 100 degrees all this week my garden has gone wild. I am just keeping up with it. I crawled out of bed this morning to get out and harvest before the sun became too hot, and this was the harvest.
I cleaned it all up and set out to give the tops to the radishes and carrots to my four legged friends out in the barn.
You can see who their best buddy was on this day.
