It has been a while since my last activity on Sew Weekly. School was horribly busy, then I went on an exchange, back for practicum and finally had some time to myself to sew. Initially, I planned to rush this dress out for the trip but to no avail. What you see is the result of some jetlag and France/Paris withdrawal syndrome. It is a way overdue project for Pantone. You can read the rest of the dress story on my blog.
Earlier this year, I went on a buttons frenzy and splurged on Etsy. As the collection grew, I needed somewhere where I could make use/display them usefully. So I chose Sorbetto where I could install some on the pleat on the centre front. France/Paris withdrawal syndrome did help to decide which buttons to use.
I apologise for the lack of photos. Here’s my signing off, missing Eiffel, wearing Eiffel and posing with Eiffel
