Here is what’s been keeping me busy for the past several weeks:
This dress x7. The request was for something simple and beachy, with a “Love SIC” applique (Sea Isle City). The fabric is an aqua batik with lots of color variations. It looks very water-like, and the print is reminiscent of coral. I think it’s a color that will look good on all of the girls. Here’s the back:
I thought I would get really SIC ( sorry, I couldn’t help myself ) of making the same thing over & over again 7 times, all at once, but I actually didn’t mind it, once all the fabric was cut ( In case you were wondering, I HATE cutting fabric ). If things go smoothly today, they’ll be all done by tonight. Keep your fingers crossed! The only thing I’m disappointed with is the fact that since I forgot to order size labels in time, I was forced to make my own. I tried the rubber stamp method, but despite heat setting for several minutes, they still weren’t completely waterproof. Anyway, you can kinda see it at the bottom of this pic. I think they look a little too homemade as opposed to handmade, but I’m going to try to work on them a bit more:
When I’m done this project, I might actually be able to work on a shop update.
