Have you ever started a project that never seems to end, no matter how much time is put in?
This was intended to be a Sew Weekly challenge project early last year. I missed the deadline and packed the pieces away.
The initial problem was that my yardage was extremely limited. I just love getting great deals on beautiful fabric. However, without a specific project in mind, knowing the correct amount of yardage to purchase is rather difficult. There was no way for me to squeeze all of the pattern pieces out of my pumpkin silk when I finally decided on a pattern, so I had to find a suitable contrast, which took longer than expected.
I recall pulling the pieces out again in early Fall for another challenge, and once again, time got away from me, or I just lost interest.
The colors are very autumnal, but I am determined to finish this dress before Spring arrives. I have been lacking in sewing motivation lately, but the time has come to put this project to bed. So I have been working on the finishing bits and pieces for the last couple of weeks in fits and starts. And I am almost there!
