I actually am kinda retired. So I be at liberty to comply with my pursuits as they seem. I’ve been cleansing out my studio, and preserve discovering issues that might be completed. And a few issues that might be began!
This piece of material was bought a few years in the past, and I pitched it to a number of of my ballroom purchasers, however nobody took the bait. I could not have pitched with nice conviction, as I LOVED this print. I could have (on many ranges) wished to maintain it for myself. Kinda want I had laid it out flat so that you can see, however this was after I calculated a spot the place I believed my necklace may match and chopped a gap in the midst of the material to take a look. It is a poly single knit, and runs in a single course, so I knew I wanted minimal seaming. I made a decision on dolman sleeves, and shaping from aspect seams solely.
This is the necklace.
Sooo… A pair days later…
I pleated the precise aspect to supply a extra fascinating match and little bit of motion.
The necklace suits the area, and with out being too matchy-matchy, feels OK to me with the print.
Pleating element. I’m an inch bigger than the shape on the waist and on the hip. I fill it out a bit higher!
And right here is the again element.
I’m having numerous enjoyable stitching in my studio not too long ago. Beading is feeling very sedentary to me, and I wish to be extra cell. But it surely’s nonetheless good to put on all that beadwork, particularly in a brand new context!
After which, after all, there may be THIS! Let’s hope it doesn’t change into a everlasting wardrobe characteristic!
Keep secure and wholesome!
