The final countdown


I still can't get over the fact that we are on our last project for Sew Colette. Sarah and I thought it might be fun to reminisce over our past projects and vote for our favorite garments. Whether you sewed along or not, feel free to chime in with your thoughts. We will be featuring the five favorites all next week.

Speaking of the Licorice dress, I'm making some progress! My muslin is completed (for the main fit at least) and while it looks a little wrinkly/loose on the form, it fits better when it's on me. I'm such a procrastinator, hopefully I will get this done by the deadline. How are all of your dresses coming along?

  1. Egads! My dress is coming along, I guess. I got the shell all pulled together but then, uh, completely stopped working on it for a while? Planning to devote some serious hours this weekend. Best of luck with yours!

  2. I'm hoping to get a bunch of sewing done this weekend with the holiday, but we'll see if my hands can keep up with what my brain has planned ;)

  3. Aw, man, I decided to sit the Licorice out since I'm so busy these days, but seeing everyone muslin theirs makes me long to join in!

  4. I've traced the pattern, and that's about it so far. I really need to get moving along. I think I'm delaying because I don't want the sew along to be over. :(
