I was, however, inspired to draft and make this for Isabella on Friday.The pattern of the fabric makes the design lines hard to see. It has princess seams from the armhole, and there is a sort of indent in the armhole where the panels meet to really play that element up. I wasn't thinking when I topstitched those seams though and stitched them the wrong way. At least with this busy print it isn't obvious, but in a solid colour it would look odd. That's what you get for steaming away till 12.30am because you HAVE to finish this dress tonight so she can wear it tomorrow. For no particular reason.
I've learnt over the years that if it is possible I should go where the mojo leads - if I'm not inspired to work on something it won't get my best efforts and I could use the procrastinating time productively anyway. So the white dress has been hanging half finished for a couple of days, but Isabella has a new dress. Works for me!
