I have been busy sewing for the Sydney summer and here is the finished V1228 kimono Vena Cava Dress dress on my daughter.
I liked it so much that I made one for me.
The hound somehow got into the act as soon as I set up the tripod. This can come in handy. In fact if I am doing a shot on my own I get him to sit and stay in the required spot so I can set the focus then I go stand in it. I am still working on getting him to then stay out of shot until I am finished. It's a work in progress for both of us.
The dress is a simple design made into something more by the deep neckline and the pleats and sleeve tabs. It is a good dress to throw on on hot days, in fact a good city shopping dress. It smartens up well with accessories and would be special if done up in a heavy fluid silk.
I'll do a PR review to discuss my modifications, which were basically go large then cut down, and go a bit higher with the neck because it is boob-skimming low.Happy Sewing folks.
