Calling all Gatsby-Goers!
The Gatsby Summer Afternoon is less than two weeks away and I haven't even finished my dress! As you may recall, I was last trying to decide whether to restore or reproduce a dress for the picnic.
While I made the decision to restore, the dress had other plans for me. It was far more delicate and fragile than I had initially thought and all restoration had to be abandoned. Working with this dress was like working with the Ark from Indiana Jones — all I have to do is look at it for it to dissolve right in front of my eyes. Actually, it wasn't the Ark that dissolved, it was the Nazis. Either way, the fabric was fragile.
I'll be posting more about the dress closer to the date.
But now, more importantly, let's talk about the picnic itself. Our fabulous Debi will be flying all the way out from Scotland to make the picnic! I'm so terribly excited! It will be a perfect place for us to have a Sew Weekly meetup. So, if you're planning to attend, please let me know in the comments. Or, if you're a bit shy, send me an email via the contact form. We'll talk about the logistics of meeting up and all that great stuff.
