learning to cut freehand… and inserting a nice zipper.
I can’t sleep.
I just returned from spending Canada Day in Stratford, Ontario. Hope everyone is having a terrific holiday weekend, I got a taste of it…
Fireworks, blueberry pie, roses, swans and gardens, the model T’s, the parade with the horses and the band and the whole bit. I quite live an idyllic life these past couple of weekends, eh?
The city reeks, and it is hot and mizzy, even at night. Ick.
So I’m going to cut a dress freehand, inspired by Julian, and insert a centered zipper, guided by Kathleen. I am so thankful to have discovered these remarkable people. The work they do inspires and empowers.
My material – a free sarong from some cruise ship.
Originally I chalked something on there but once I got cutting I refined as I went. The round thing will be a pocket. There’s a centered zipper on one side. Facings on the armholes. I’m going to do a bias binding on the neckline.
Tomorrow night… sewing.
