Today is the day, sew-alongers! I am so, so excited that we've officially completed this sew-along together. It was such a fantastic experience for me, and I loved that I was able to work on a project with others and get to know many of you just a bit better through our collective sewing. I do hope you had fun with this, if you participated, and you're pleased with your final dress! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to contribute your dress to the link list (which will be open indefinitely, so don't worry if you're not done with your version yet!). So without further ado, here is my version:
|are you ready to celebrate? alas, I forgot to pick up a party hat last time I was out...|
|for the curious, the shoes are the Remix Rita heels; a Christmas gift from my in-laws.|
|more pictures here.|
|details: fabric flower made from scraps of leftover silk. how very 1940s to use all the scraps!|
|details: vintage white ceramic belt buckle embellishing the self-fabric belt.|
Note: Due to an ongoing spam problem with the link widget I originally used in this post, I unfortunately had to disable it. Please visit the Flickr group to see some of the finished dresses participants made!
