Sewing

Slowly but Surely

The turquoise peplum top with matching skirt is coming along quite nicely. Next up is the lining. Because the Riviera print wasn’t as wide as I’d expected, I ended up only cutting out the front lining pieces from it; the back lining pieces were cut from a plain ivory crepe de chine. Had I thought about it a bit more, I could have cut the front off of center, which would have saved just enough of the print for one of the back pieces. But, I woke up with that idea the morning after I cut. Oh well. I did learn that one of my friends is making a scarf from that very same print, so at least someone I know will have the full Riviera!

Anyway, here’s to the start of a happy weekend of sewing. I hope your weekends are all starting off lovely as well!
