And I finished the red dress, Vogue 8998 in three days.
It was a fun adventure since I was a little dusty from the seven year sewing hiatus. It was the first time using horsehair for the hem finish. A special thanks to the tutorial from Gertie’s Blog which was quite clear on how to insert the horsehair braid on the hem. So 3 yards of silk charmeuse, 3 yards of lining, 2 yards of interfacing and 1 yard of shimmery organza later, this is the results:
I wasn’t sure how it was going to look on me but I received the thumbs up from both of my sons.
And there you have it. A challenge succeeded.
