Fitted dress #2 is progressing. The first panel is done!
Here it is next to panel #2, which is stenciled and ready to go:
So here's the weird thing: 1) the completed panel definitely shrinks/contracts a little bit along the way, and 2) the blues look so different! Exact same fabric, though. I guess increasing the contrast by cutting out the shapes causes that?
Here's what I'm going for eventually:
I'm planning to make the underskirt too -- I ordered this hemp/organic cotton lightweight jersey from Organic Cotton Plus, which I'm hoping will work. Figuring out the beading should be fun. Also, seeing how long the "mid-length" skirt falls on someone who's 5'0".
And pockets! Pockets this time, if I can figure those out too.
