Okay, so I just posted Week 1 yesterday, but these projects WERE done on 2 separate weeks. The creation I did this past week I actually wore to church on Sunday morning, and I got really nice compliments on it (even from a tres chic teenager, which is always nice when you're an old fart like me).
I needed another no-sew change, and at first I considered that I could just make the dress a little shorter. I could have, but the pleating right under the bustline would have made a knee skimming dress potentially unflattering, especially since my tummy is my problem area. Also, I wanted to wear it to sing with the worship team, and my headphones make it hard to wear a dress. (It's complicated, but I have a connector for my headphone jack that is very heavy, so it's most convenient if I put it in a pocket, so I generally wear jeans, or I wear a jacket or cardigan with pockets if I'm wearing a dress. Now those of you that come to church are going to pay close attention to what I'm wearing on the Sundays I sing. LOL.)
I am very happy with this refashion, and I have no idea what I am going to do for Week 3. I should probably utilize the sewing machine, but I am looking forward to some assistance from a couple of girls I know in making a custom dress form. I think it will help me greatly in the future.
