Yes, I'm already looking ahead. The Ninth Dress is coming up fast, and then double digits! I'll be a big girl then.
I know I still need to finish the Seventh Dress (not my fault) and post pictures of the finished Eighth Dress (soon! and thank god because I tired of spelling 'eighth'), but I'm looking ahead on the next couple of skills I need to conquer for this project.
I didn't set out to have a new challenge each month, just a new dress. But it turns out I like new challenges and this is where I am so far (Here is a link to the Finished Dress Gallery for a visual recap as well.):
First Dress: Hey, it's a dress!
Second Dress: Stretch fabric
Third Dress: Sleeves
Fourth Dress: A Burda Pattern
Fifth Dress: Sew-a-long
Sixth Dress: Tailored, lining
(Seventh Dress: will be working with a silky material)
Eighth Dress: Tailored, pattern alterations, collar
...I'm thinking of doing coordinates, so create all the looks of an EASY coordinate pattern that includes a dress. I'm also thinking a fully lined dress that has no lining pattern included. In fact there is fabric on the way for just such a project. Any other highlights I need to hit before my run is up? If you were my teacher, what homework would you assign?
