affectionately titled, Studio One. . .
I brought a touch of Autumn to my vintage dress form, Lizzie!
Although this space is well equipped
with a fabulous sewing machine and sewing notions. . .
I h a t e to s e w !!!
Lizzie had been left 'undressed' since returning
from being "on loan" from my friends daughters Wedding Reception!
So~o~o. . .
finding fabric that I had purchased nearly 25 years ago
(thinking I would make the fabric into an apron), I pinned the fabric on Lizzie.
I know this year's fashion has showcased many a sheath dress,
but when I was learning to sew. . .
we called these styles a "sack dress".
A "sack dress" original in Studio One
using a Philip's Bag grain products sack!
By just pinning a shoulder seam along the top with straight pins,
and folding the neck line under, I have a simple "sack" dress or sheath.
Once the "sack dress" was adjusted, I firmly attached the back
by pushing T~pins into the knit portion of the dress form.
I accessorized using a burlap wired ribbon as a bow around the high~neck
and as a belt around the bloused middle.
