Working on V8968

  Things have been pretty quiet around these parts lately, with school getting out for my boys and then we took a trip to see my husbands family.  Also, I just didn't know where I was with the whole blogging thing. I mean don't get me wrong I love the community and all, but I just didn't feel that love for it that I felt when I first started blogging. But then it dawned on me that things changed, that I'd changed... Change is necessary but not all change is for the better, right? I am just speaking for myself, but I am yearning to get back to actually sharing, not only the finished product but the in between product as well ( I hope I'm making sense :)... Some of my favorite bloggers really draw me in to their process and I want to get back to that in some way... Okay now that I've spilled MY tea LOL...  Here's the dress that I've been working on:



   I have been diligently working on a dress, but I will be wearing as a top, ummm a short dress/ top and these thighs= no bueno!  I've been working on V8968, which is labeled very easy by Vogue.. This is a very easy dress in theory; however, the dang facing for the hem gave me the blues... I have yet to slip- stitch the hem facing in place as per the instructions (that hand sewing will get you every time:).
The fabric I purchased last year some time
on Fabric.com, which is some type of poly
blend..

   Whenever I tried to get the facing pinned to the hem band the fabric started shifting and would not lie flat, almost as if the facing should have been reduced a bit.. I don't know, maybe it was me... I still need to hand sew the facing in place, as well as attach the neck facing. I was going to opt to do a binding, but preferred not to see the stitching from sewing on a binding, where as a facing I could just tack to the shoulder seams... I am hoping  to get finished by the weekend. I'm moving slower, but I'm actually enjoying the pace.. As always y'all Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
