Phew, let me catch my breath for a second..
Ok, I think this last piece was the greatest challenge of all seven... but I'm thinking isn't it appropriate to end a challenge with a challenge?
This particular pattern (Ottobre) wasn't what was causing the problems, but the circumstances were. It's hot here. Sticky hot, the kind that makes you break out into a sweat if you do as much as wiggle your toe. The kind that makes children go whiny and babies less content than they usually are. The kind that makes mothers sleepy and lazy and not wanting to sit behind the sewing machine. That kind... I'm sure you know what I mean.
Nonetheless, as this was the last day of my challenge, I simply had to produce a piece of clothing. And that piece of clothing was this summer dress for Amber. It's made of a thrifted duvet cover, and I do hope it doesn't look as if my girl is wearing bedding. I haven't been able to check, since my model went to bed long before this dress was finished (which also explains the light challenging photos...).
Question: is a blind zipper supposed to be invisible?! Cause mine obviously isn't ;)
If you look closely you'll notice that I haven't made buttonholes nor sewn on buttons yet; I'll do that after I've finished this post. It'll be ready for Amber to wear tomorrow.
So, I challenged myself to sew seven things for my children in one week... and I did! Next post I'll do a little recap. Now I think I need a little rest (after I've finished the dress ofcourse!).
