It's been very hot out, and I've not wanted to go anywhere or do much, but I feel I need to be productive in order to keep my sanity.
Since I've made two of the three dresses from the sew-along, and I still have bra burn out, and I don't want to shlep all the way to the hot fabric district to get some slip fabrics, I'm going to do some mock ups.
I've been wanting to take a crack at these two patterns for months. I've always said that 40s Du Barrys are generally bland, but these two I thought were just the bees knees.
Since the skirts are pretty much the same, I'm going to use the skirt on my PPP dress because I love the fit. I love the bodice pieces on these two. They are just so unusual, and even though I love the plain in patterns, the unusual that can be made up ten ways to Sunday is a good find too.
So far I've copied the pieces of the pieces for 5767. I'm planning on grading them today and seeing if I can put together the mock up too. Should not be that hard, so we will see how the heat plays.
What else is everyone working on?
