Progress

Progress is being made.


Completed:
2 back darts, 4 front darts. shoulder seams. stay tape at shoulders and necklines.  facing has been attached and understitched.

Needing still:
zipper, side seams, topstitching on neckline.
sleeves, hem, belt.

I also printed and taped my lady skater dress pattern. Yay!

It's been a heck of a week here.  The start of it is that my dryer died. It went downhill from there. LOL. I'll spare the depressing details.
So I will leave you with a happy thought instead.
A small glimpse into a child's mind. It makes me happy to have moments like these in my life.
You know, because Cheetah has to be safe and all.

  3. Oh, I love the colours in your new top, very pretty :) Sympathies with regard to the drier. I think our dishwasher is on the way out and I love that thing! Nice to see toy safety taking priority at your place, though :))
