69. Finished: Wrap this Dress up!

Wrapping the wrap Dress up from Calgary to Nova Scotia

Finding the time is making the time! After putting my new sewing room together I made the effort to finish this puppy up and I’m pleased with the result.

 From Beginning to End

I’m happy to say, finished! Sewing this dress took a long time with many interruptions along the way. I’m only guessing 4 years it took to finish this dress. I started a knitting business, homeschool for my youngest, took on a large wall quilt job, moved across Canada and the general hub-bub of life. My intention for the next dress is a shorter time of creation from start to finish.

Hemming the Dress

Hemming the dress proved to be a bit more challenging than expected. First problem the hem is straight across, so I’ll be changing that for the next dress which will not take 4 years. The second problem was something I forgot about early on and as the years progress it slipped my mind and didn’t surface until the end when I was hemming. So, the problem was up front where there are two layers and the underlayer was too wide at the bottom and as you can imagine this was not good! Fixed it to my satisfaction.

Next Wrap dress will be Black

I’m looking forward to starting this dress and finishing it up much, much sooner. Since I have the pattern altered and I will also make necessary adjustments concerning the hem I’m sure it’ll take no time at all. Also I’ll be changing sleeves to a cap ones.

God Bless & Sew On

Question: What’s your next sewing project?

Thank you, Jennifer
