Butterfly top done

Butterfly top done, originally uploaded by cherry_rockette.

Needs a few tweaks. Widen the neck a little and lower a little too, so
it's a bit less clown-ruff like, but otherwise loving it.

Still in the design stage, but coming along nicely for winter.

Two hours later...

Two hours later..., originally uploaded by cherry_rockette.

And a post lost to the ether. Grrr. Oh well.
I do love howthis dress has evolved. Sometimes a design has its' own
ideas and you're just along for the ride, and sometimes you spend
forever trying to wrestle fabric into more than a two dimensional
nudity shield.
And then occasionally a design evolves simultaneously on paper,
dressform and in my hands. And it is gooood.
Chevron stripes in patent black appliqued onto a thick wool blend
ponti knit(only a small stretch to suck everything in and be
comfortable), and the collar in same. The radiating stripes from the
waist shaping and highlighting bust and hips, whilst the shine adds
roundness and a sense of the illicit to what would otherwise be a
basic black dress.
Mmmmmm can't wait to make this one!
Hopefully in time for Saturday's derby bout.

Next pattern

Next pattern, originally uploaded by cherry_rockette.

I started on this pattern today. I wanted a basic dress that had a bit
of spark to it, you know the kind that makes you think 'Must. Wear.
This. Dress'. So somehow I'll get the graded feature sides effect and
collar integrated better than here. Still felling a little disparate
at the moment. See if by getting my hands dirty in the design I can
dream up something.

Just waiting on some time to sew it up.
Hopefully soon before it's too cold to wear.
