|The dress is moving along. The zipper trim is slowly being sewn onto the wool felt foundation, by machine - free motion machine zig zag to be exact. The goal is for the needle and the zipper not to come in contact with one another.
|Woot! There is success in the making of the skirt! I am really happy with how it looks. Now onto the background, for fabrics that will set the dress off the best.
|The red collage pieces, are from another project, in the leftover bin. I like this look, but it will take more time to recreate this look. The black and white polka dot is too much. The main focus has to be the dress, and not the background.
|Here's a piece of fabric from The Sewing Party store in Laguna Hills, California. Their booth was my daily stop at the Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA. I will be using it for another project, not this one. It doesn't do anything for my dress.
|Going back to my original idea of the fabric collage background, which will set off the dress in the way that I want. And it is time consuming to create, but so was the dress, so it all works out.
