What I've been up to!

             It's been a week since my last post and I have been working I tell you... Working, on  muslins, muslins and more muslins.. I know in the last post we were chatting about my triumph over the invisible zipper... I had been slowly but surely working diligently on S2451;  however, little did I know that you should attach the yoke before you sew the invisible zipper....Umm...Divas, what happened? You didn't even tell me LOL.. But that's lesson I needed to learn, and learn I did....

This is invisible zipper that I was so hyped about! HA!
and as you can the yoke piece was not attached :(
lesson learned I tell you!

  So, after got over the initial shock and utter disappointment.. I searched high and low on how to not only install the invisible zipper, but how to clean finish the edge as well without requiring any handstitching. And lo and behold, I stumbled upon the most glorious tutorial ever.... I mean the same skirt technique and all, with the yoke and the yoke facing.... I Couldn't have asked for more..So, I guess I have to thank you wonderful Divas for holding out on me! I forgive you  :) but on a serious note I am so glad to have found this tutorial! If you get a chance check this out and let me know what you think....

This is how the skirt should look prior to inserting the invisible zipper!
*DUH* I should have realized that!
 I had to restart my skirt which was fine! As I wasn't in love with the previous fabric and thought I could do a better job on the skirt(we always say that to soften the blow huh :) So, I have pretty much constructed the most  of the skirt and it is looking quite lovely if I say so myself...I am really taking my time now with my garments..I really want to be proud to wear and say that I made my garments... But enough of that! I am working really hard, I am just waiting on my white invisible zipper to finish up the skirt...

  I also, just finished a muslin of S3503 a very popular maxi dress on PatternReview...And I can rightly see why the design is wonderful and produces a trendy dress.... My fabric is in the washer now so that I can start on the real dress tomorrow sometime... I also signed up for Faye's summer dress challenge so if you haven't signed up there's still time....I am so excited for this is my first ever challenge....

  If you haven't counted that is three projects that's in the works..I hope I didnt bite off more than I can chew, but oh well I am going for it! Wish me the best Divas! Be blessed and nothin' less!
