The dress that took an eternity is finally finished. The fabric was what kept this project from going quicker I must say. Like I mentioned last time, I had to tailor tack all those pleats in the front, and on top of it, the fabric was jersey knit and a bit slippery.
There are a few imperfections, but I had to let them go, as it would have taken even longer to go back and correct them. Most people would not notice except for me.
Caitlin is going to wear this tonight for her "anniversary" of her first date with Cyrous. Perfect retro look for the restaurant that they will be going to.
After I finished the dress, I dove right into making some boiled wool red capes. They have a really nice weight to them, and I will be adding some nice little details to them.
Here's one, about to be lined. I had enough to make two sizes. They will be a size 2/3 years and the second one is 4/5 years. Just in time for the holidays. What little girl wouldn't want a red cape?! I'm off now to complete these and hopefully get them in the shop early next week.
