Now, for the trim at the hem, I didn't just sew on a strip of fabric. I used a quilt binding technique I learned from Dear Fii. It makes for a beautiful finish with no exposed seams. Yes, I know it was intended for quilts, but it works perfectly for dresses and skirts, too.
Now I can relax and finish sewing a dress for myself that I started 2 summers ago. Maybe I'll get that done in time for my birthday so I can have a new birthday dress, too. Also, on a birthday note, miss O is already in the thinking process for her next birthday cake. Now that she's a whopping six going on seven, she has decided to ponder upon it for a while before committing to a cake design. I mean , for heaven's sake, she's only got until January to make a decision. My guess? I think she'll go with something cat-ish OR something owl-ish. Either way, I can totally do that. Although, for the sake of uniqueness I'm hoping for owls. I'll let you know when she makes a decision.
Have a lovely Thursday....xo ANG
