Before starting on my new dress, I decided to finish the Charlotte dress yesterday. Thanks again everyone for the feedback about the trims and length, and for your general enthusiasm!
Seb is too busy to take pictures, so I put the dress on my dressform. I know this doesn't "speak" as much as a dress worn IRL, but that's all I could do :)
I hemmed the dress to just below the knee. Don't you love the way it puffs up now? I hope this won't sound conceited, but I really love that dress. The ruffles at the armholes are my idea - the dress was originally sleeveless.
When I was done with the dress, I hadn't had quite enough of red, so I decided to keep going. The result was this miniature wallhanging:
I had so much fun with the details such as the feather stitch quilting, and the embroidered hearts at the center of the quilt.
It's now in the boutique. It'll be hard to part with that one!
Hope you're all having a restful and creative Sunday!
