I’ve been pretty quiet the past few days, trying to stay away from my computer and phone so that I can finish up the HP Kimono Dress! I have been working so much the past two weeks that I’ve had zero sewing time, grrrr. But this morning I just decided to ignore all the usual distractions and concentrate on finishing up. I still have to do the hems and shorten the ties (I know they are supposed to wrap around one more time but I don’t want that many layers around my waist) but here you go:
I was scratching my head a bit when I got to the front band/tie unit but it was easy to figure out in the end. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it but once I started putting the pieces together it became very clear. I’ll post a couple of photos on that next week and talk about some of the alterations I made. The most important thing I want to share with you is that the length is perfect on me (at the knee) and I am 5’3″ – if you’re taller you will need to add length to the skirt. I always check the length before I cut because of my height – it was nice not to have to make a length adjustment for a change.
I’m headed to the shower now so that Bryan and I can meet my BFF for Mexican food (her DH is in Gainesville covering the Florida/Miami game). No sewing tomorrow as I promised Bryan I’d go to the Dolphins game with him. I guess I am going to have to learn to like football… They do sell margaritas at the stadium now!
