Yes, this is a picture of my front, LOL!
I finished them all. All five. Yay! I gotta tell you, it feels mighty satisfying saying you are going to finish a quantity of a project, and then actually do finish it. All in a week or so as well. **Pat my back**
I'm rather proud of the elastic legs. That's the first time I've done that and they all turned out real well. Just two plain buttons for the waist closure and presto.
I made two of poplin, one of which I dyed, two in a light flower print, and one in cotton seersucker. I think that one was a bit spicy. Recognize that print?
Yup! I actually made them for this dress. I plan on wearing it to a dance this Sunday. Hee Hee Hee.
I also dyed the red pair of shoes. This dye preformed much differently than the blue did. I should have expected that, red is typically more transparent than blue. On a scale of 1-10, with the blue shoes being about a 9.5, these are a solid 8.
Still, even after 6 coats, I have this much dye left! I used double the dye on these than I did on the blue shoes, so that should tell you how far my $7 (each color) for this dye has gone.
I coated them at least 6 times and there are still streaks. I mean they are totally wearable, but I was hoping for a solid even tone. No biggie, twenty dollar shoes after all.
I may start on the brown ones today. Just to get all this dying over with. Maybe...
What are your plans for the weekend? Just one more day!
I'm gonna do what Mr. Turner says :)
