Himself woke in Paris this morning. I did not. Not this time.
The purple sheet mock was successfully taken apart then transformed from the 18 I originally cut into a 14 (raised another inch at the waist adjustment line) so I was good to go to make the first TLD out of a rayon cotton blend I got there last summer. And yippee -- careful cutting means there's enough left for a top of some sort.
Nothing goes to waste in my craft and sewing room. The purple sheet mock of this dress seemed the perfect subject for testing out a keyhole back.
