February was a glorious month weatherwise, (not too good for the farmers though). Anyway I made another dress in the same style but fitted the back with two long darts. Again I used Cotton Sateen bought from Fabric Vision and again it was easy peasy to sew. And congratulate me, I didn't use black! Love this dress and since I already had the fitted toile, it was quick to make. I put in a V-neck this time and edged the neck with satin bias binding.
It's so comfy. I think its the slight stretch in the material that makes it so. I've been wearing it with a short sleeved red cardie to barbeques and out shopping.
I would have to admit to being a bit of an impatient sewer, simply because I want it finished so I can wear it. But when I get like that I have now trained myself to put it down and come back to it another day. Forcing myself to make a toile was soooo worthwhile, I recommend it.
