Subversive Femme

Energy sapping to energy zapping!

I’m sure every sewer knows what I mean – you’re trying to get a sewing project to work, and the effort is sucking the life out of you. So you put it in the ‘One Day’ pile and leave it for a couple of years.

Which is what I had planned for my ButchWax-inspired dress as four muslins for the bodice, and another four for the collar was really draining me.

I’m really glad I gave it a final go as it’s come out perfect! Even Jakk was really suprised at how good the dress looks. Unfortunately I ran out of pompom trim, so heres a sneak boob-shot of its unfinished state. (I’m full of energy at the moment, really buzzing about how cute it looks).

I’m ducking down to Spotlight tomorrow to get more trim so hopefully in the next few days it’ll be ready for proper photos…

    Seriously darling frock! I love pompom trim so much – great call on using it here on this classic gingham dress. Can't wait to see the full frock when you're done, dear gal.
