Danielle Progress

November 19, 2008

I cut out my Danielle today, and am so excited about it!  I’m making it out of a skirt that I bought from a sample sale my company had.  It was an old sample that I guess they don’t need anymore, so I got it for $2!  Crazy!  I thought there would be plenty of material to work with. Turns out, there was just barely enough for the outside of the dress, so I had to cut the facings out of something else.  I had to play around with the skirt so I didn’t even end up using those pattern pieces at all (just in order to fit everything on this skirt).

The material is a gorgeous knitted wool from Eileen Fisher– so so pretty.  A little bit stretchy too (I’m hoping stretchy enough that I don’t need a zipper- but this might be wishful thinking).🙂

In other news, I posted a dress that I remade last summer.  Check it out here.

    Oh my that’s a lovely dress!!
    The skirt looks great. You know? it’s really hard for me to find here stretchy fabrics. =(
