I'm laughing as I write - I have never encountered such difficult, tough, iron-strong fabric! No needle would pierce it. Not a ballpoint, microtex, universal, or jersey needle. I ended up sewing this with a denim needle! Yes, it's an ITY knit. But it's extremely close-woven and hard as nails...
I just love this dress. The print is beautiful and has all my colors and a bit of a bohemian vibe. I made it way back in January as a muslin for my MOB dress. And now that year-end is upon us, I thought I should write about it.
It was so hard to sew that I used a more forgiving black rayon knit for the neck binding. My attempts to use the ITY just spat at me. And no hems! By the time I got to the hem point of construction, I gave up and gave in. I just cut the hem and sleeves where I wanted them.
When I took these pics this morning, I had just gotten home from a visit with my dentist. So I'm wearing earrings and, wow, my glasses, both for the first time here on my blog! I have nice jewelry, and I used to load up every day. But being home so much, and with such sensitive skin, I've fallen out of the habit. I think that, in the new year, I'll do something about that!
On other fronts, holiday projects continue. I love all the things on my dining room table awaiting some wrapping and notes. Hope you have such wonderful things going on in your space as well.
Bye for now! Coco
