You wont believe who I made this for!

some actual, honest-to-goodness, "ME-TIME-SEWING"

I was in the mood to make myself something summery and envisioned this sorta-ombre design. It dyed up almost exactly how I wanted....... although the dress itself isn't totally what I wanted. Maybe I'll replace the matching waistband with a contrasting teal-ish one. But it is a very comfy bamboo rayon jersey (khaki to begin with).



then got these finished last week.... for "Dress a Girl Around the World"


TFL!

Awesome dye job!

I agree that giving it a contrast band would give it some extra "pop"

I thought you were going to say a celebrity big-wig ordered something from your store!

THanks, Novia. Yeah, I'll work on changing that.

.... well that would be just about as rare as me making something for myself.... let alone posting a self-portrait!

Awesome! I know what you mean- it's so rare I knit or sew something for myself. Thought last night I did sit down and repair a couple of my bras that had the underwire popping out- does that count?

Oh really? I'm in Kzoo. I don't have wares in any local shops, just on HC, but I have a lot of lovely local customers!
It's just diapers, though, I don't sell any clothing. This was a rare diversion from my usual "show & tell".

Thanks!

I love it!

(I wouldn't change the waistband color. But I might add a few teal colored wooden beads to the neckline if it were me.)
