This year’s Eva Dress Pattern Contest ends this week, and, per usual, I have waited to the last minute to complete my submission.
I had a different pattern in mind for my rayon jacquard, but once I had this pattern in hand, I decided it would be a wonderful pairing.
One of the reasons for my decision was a buckle that has been burning a hole in my stash for quite a few years. My original pattern choice did not have a waist seam. But I really like the look of the buckle paired back with the deep green fabric, so the change was absolutely necessary!
And as fate would have it, JoAnn Fabrics actually had some buttons in stock that work with my buckle.
I have been working away on cuffs . . .
and lapped seams . . .
and playing with seam binding and silk organza.
And I am almost finished!
