Yesterday, I spent the afternoon cutting out costume fabric. So by the time evening rolled around, I was very excited to get started sewing.
But, I got distracted doing other things and I wound up never getting near my machine. It was a good thing too, because as I was laying in bed drifing off to sleep, I had a thought. “Oh, my goodness, that black fabric is so sheer in places, Taylor will never wear it! What am I going to do?” Lots of things crossed my mind… Wearing a tank top – I figured it would never look right because of the cut of the dress. Maybe a black sports bra? – Here again, depending on the style, it wouldn’t look right, plus Taylor would never go for it because someone might see it. Then I thought about lining it! It’s not my ideal, but I do have some nude swimwear lining stashed away from my recent swimsuit making binge that I went on this spring. Agh, problem solved. I’m just glad I figured it out before I started sewing!
Anyway, this morning, I went to work on sewing – adding in the extra step of lining the entrie bodice of the dress. This is what I have done so far:
The off white lace still looks way too white and not nearly dingy enough for my taste. I figure after I construct the entrie dress, I’ll grunge it up.
