Mad Men: Completed
I completed the handwork around the sleeves while watching a Midsummer Mystery with my husband. This is my favorite time to do handwork, in the evening, in a comfy chair, with the addition of my close up glasses..alright maybe a glass of port, possibly tea as well.
Could not resist showing it here styled as I am planning on wearing it for its debut. I have a beautiful pair of spectator pumps that look fabulous with this combo. Additionally I tried my burnt red wool crepe jacket with it....also very nice. A girl has to have options.
Sadly it will be a few months before the weather allows the wearing of this dress, but its so nice to feel ready for spring.
Here she is unadorned, for the purists out there.
Any thoughts on jewelry.....anyone?
And the back....not much to say, except that my tush is apparently fuller then my dress forms.
Needless to say I am contemplating future projects..... I have a beautiful piece of silk chiffon to make a blouse very similar in style to the bodice of this dress. I have at least 3 pieces of wool that I could make pencil skirts from, again using the skirt of this dress. But I have my sights set on spring now....and of course yoga pants and tops...did I mention a new quilt for my bed.....yeah....
