Sherbet Striped English Dress - Sleeve Detail and Hat
Isn't it lovely, colourful and summery? I am quite happy with the result. I will have to pull out a few extra threads from the trim to make it look cleaner, and the lining is not completely sewn to the bodice, but these are minor details. The important thing is, I finished it in time.
For those of you who might wonder about my hat and hair do, I tried making thread loops inside the hat to pull bobby pins through and stick the whole thing to my head, but it is not the best solution. I think in the future, I will add ribbons to tie the hat to to my head. As to my hair, I tried using a Bumpit to fake a little poof, but I need more practice using it.
Do check out my submission page (in French only) here. Now I can't wait to see if I win! That would be nice, but there are many impressive entries, so I will have to wait and see.
