So, since Kinza was finished her dress and wearing it hither and thither all week long we exempted her from our last meeting, and it was only Erin and Sheri who were forced to deal with me and my craziness. Somewhere between meeting #2 and this meeting the color of my skirt totally changed color. Really. I swear. At meeting #2 we all found a fabric in a color that we all thought worked with the top and with the painting. Great. I spent a few nights working on a skirt - it would have been one night had I actually used my measuring tape the first time around- I know better, I just don't always listen to myself.
|Just trace the outline and cut right? Note to self: stop talking to Kinza on the phone about how awesome it is that she finished her dress and gets to wear it to the wedding when you should be measuring things!|
|AND measure. Measure before you cut. Then you only have to waste one night working on a skirt that isn't the right color and has to be scrapped.|
|With some color tweaking by Sheri it almost works. Almost.|
|This would(will) be an amazing skirt, it just doesn't work with the shirt. And I have put a LOT of hours into the shirt. I am not scrapping the shirt!|
Back to the Art at The Green Man challenge. Erin's dress is coming along fabulously. I have cropped the pictures extensively as I don't want to give too much away.
