Let’s play with makeup and dresses, shall we?
This outfit was sewn from wine-coloured double gauze bought from eBay, with a metallic gold dot. It’s super cute, wears and launders well – what’s not to like? Of course, because of those gold dots, I pressed the fabric on the wrong side, and not at top heat. If I pressed from the right side, I’d use my silk organza press cloth.
Double gauze is perfect for a tiered dress. It’s so relaxed and dreamy.
The great thing about making a floaty dress from double gauze is that you don’t need to bother with pressing the make after it’s been through the washing machine. Those little, ridged pillows of fabric just add to the texture.
So, all levity to one side, how are you doing? Ella and I are staying fairly buoyant, and taking advantage of our one opportunity to exercise each day. This afternoon, we bumped into a sewing friend in Epping Forest – keeping a respectful distance, of course.
Stay safe. Stay happy. Play with makeup and dresses!
