Now onto the last blouse (Pendrall): I can't decide on the large or small polka dot fabric. What do you think? I think I'm leaning towards the smaller dots and saving the large one for a dress or something larger.
On to actual sewing. I've been working steadily on the first dress, Ceylon by Colette. I've had this pattern in my file for a while, but the glaring 'Intermediate' tag was worrying me. Oh, and the whole line of buttons along the front.
Now that I'm the 'master of buttons,' I wasn't feeling so intimidated. The buttons should have been the least of my worries. The dress itself has been coming along nicely, but I hate ruching fabric. I love the final look, but uuuugggghhh. It's ok, I only have the sleeves left to gather and then I'll be done!
I love how it's turning out! I'm actually debating between putting an invisible zipper in the front but I may just go ahead with the buttons. I think I'll love it either way. More coming soon. In the meantime, let me know your thoughts on the polka dots. And do you have any favorite online fabric websites?
