Just a quick one...

Tonight begins Yom Kippur, so I wanted to get this dress finished and photographed today. It would have been finished yesterday, except we had to take 2 dogs to the vet (Chloe has bronchitis and Riley has an ear infection. We couldn't take them together, because that would have been too easy. More like total chaos! :lol: Chloe's never met a person she didn't need to hug..and at 96.4 pounds, it gets....interesting. :lol:), then I had to rip out the "invisible" zipper - which wasn't - and on the 2nd attempt I managed to sew my left pointer finger to the zipper. :sigh: It's OK - just a bit sore, and very very bloody.

Anyway. I have some photos!

I LOVE this dress. The fabrics work well together, it's cute, and it's totally, totally adorable. Very comfortable, too! I swapped the cuff pattern piece for the next size up, which makes the sleeve fit perfectly. I also managed to install the zipper correctly - it's invisible!

I did the insets the same way I did the ones on dress #1 - it's messy on the inside, but works. This time I was even more careful - the points still aren't perfect, but they are more pointy. It needs washing in these photos - usually I toss it in the machine right after I finish, but I wanted to get these photos done. (I had a photo of the left side, but I was laughing at something Herself said, and it looked like I was trying to do a pin-up pose. :rofl:)

There WILL be a version 3.0 - I want to use the brown paisley fabric we got at the sale, but I'm not sure what color to use for the contrast. I'm thinking antique gold or a soft orange; Herself suggested Olive. I'm leaning towards the Olive.....but I need to find some fabric.

However, that's going to wait. Himself has requested a Jedi outfit....and since he NEVER asks me to make him things, that's up next. Then Herself wants a dress....and a couple of tops. And I need a top....and underthings. :sigh: It's never-ending, is it? :lol:

So. Tomorrow is Yom Kippur. The Day of Atonement. I highly recommend you at least stop for a minute or two and ask God for forgiveness....because we all need forgiveness!

See ya on the flip side!
