Hot! The “Final Weekly Creation of 2010” Dress

image from

After 52 weeks of sewing, I’m allowing myself to be lazy and break with the format of The Weekly Creation. So no special photo of the dress on the dress form. Instead, here’s a photograph from our own holiday party. The dress turned out okay, although it was a bit tight. I also hand-beaded some details at the neckline but didn’t take a photo of that. (I told you I’m being lazy!) 

I do have to say that part of the reason I’m being lazy is because I’ve been spending the past week redesigning The Sew Weekly for 2011 and have a little blogging fatigued. I know I still owe an announcement about the guest authors for next year — I may start all of that in February to give us all a break/head-start. I’m still working out the details.

Most. Anti-climatic. Post. Ever.
