You may remember my previous disappointing flop, the long off-white Burda 7547 dress? I was going to cut it up into dishcloths and serger covers, dust the furniture with it and tear it's little zipper out.. No? Well maybe that is just as well because .. as I started to unpick the zipper I remembered that I already had two more back bodices cut out and a drafted-to-fit-me front on paper for next time and it really wouldn't be too hard to just unpick the 'wrong' bodice and have another go at making it .. right?
Well, dear reader I cut out two revised fronts and went for it.
I am stubborn and I hate waste. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Never say dye ..
But back to the beginning, I straightened and de-sagged the front piece and finished the dress and ended up with this.
Hmm fits better but a bit nightgown-ish. What to do? I had some navy blue dye bought for another project so I researched different tie dye techniques, got busy with the rubber bands and ended up with this.
Because if I was going to get reacquainted with the Seventies I may as well go all the way. Yeah, baby.
Peace, love and mung beans to you all.
