Happy Monday to all of us, its a beautiful day and such a time for us to check on each other and not just our creative work alone.
Getting to know that my fellow needlweworkers are thriving in every aspect of their lives brings so much joy to me.

I wish everyone of us success in all our endeavors this week, more wins and blessing to your homes.

This week we continue with our needlework WIP challenge, thank goodness the 2month timing is somewhat sufficient even if we work at a slower pace depending on the project at hand.

Still working on my very little pieces I had cut and bound in the past.

This purple fabric had been on my mind sine last December when I sewed a part of it for the children's Christmas wear.
I love the color so much I wanted to make a dress from it.
Thanks to my small physique the tiny pieces has given me this so far.

No more materials for sleeves or to complete the dress, this is quite simple as other accessories like the tulle or organza can do the trick for me.
So I will go for small shopping before this can get completed.

Its my second set of wip, I havr had the cloth cut and tied together up until now.

And even while working, I had to improvise for ironing with this local charcoal iron in order to prevent postponing this dress till further date.

Now that my fashion skills have improved both in sewing, cutting and finishing, I don't know how I feel about the dress, the style looks outdated and am disliking the darts on front bodice.

I still have some fittings to do but I really do not like the dress so far.

Maybe I can gift this out if its not so bad for someone else to wear when am done making this.

Thats it for today, let's see the lovely things you guys have made

OMG @monica-ene this is the best one yet!!!

I LOVE IT!

It is so beautiful- the colours, the very stylish style and the lace.

Well done! You have sewn it all together so well.

You really are a seriously talented woman!

The color of the fabric is really very beautiful. there is so much work to put it all together! I don't understand why you don't like the dress. I think it looks very good

THe color!!! YOu are right the color is amazing and I think you really improved in sewing and your dresses are getting better and better. I think you look lovely in this dress, but I somehow also understand your reserve regarding this dress: I think (but it also could be because of the photo… I am really unsure) the bust is a tad wide for you and this makes the dress a bit more - how to say it - mature/older? The front darts exaggerate this fullness. But perhaps this will be better and look perfect when you have the dress finished and closed. So, don’t give up on the dress right now, wait till you have finished it completely <3

You are right... Its not fitted yet, the bust is wider.
I have been looking forward to your post, I guess you are yet to post

This is looking so beautiful with the lace added to it, I love the colour of the fabric too. I suggest you make it sleeves and take in some inches around the bust area to make it fit. You've really done well on your WIP project and also improving greatly on your sewing and creativity.

I agree with Simone, keep working on it until it’s fully fitted because you just never know how you’ll feel about it then. I too am a fan of that color.

That charcoal iron really caught my attention. Because of my mother’s love of antiques I am always intrigued by anything that looks vintage. When using it are you afraid to stain or burn your material? Do you actually set it on hot coals until you reach the desired temperature? I have never seen one of these so I’m curious.

So happy to see you are on to your next WIP!! Yay!! 🤩

Wow, am glad you found my iron interesting.
Well I can use it anyway, either I opened it up and pour hot coals to keep it permanently hot against having to place it over the charcoal every now and then....

But when I don't have coals I can also place it over gas fire to make it hot just like placing it over the charcoal.

And its a very common tool here, maybe designed for countries with low power supply.

Most times I don't place it directly over my clothes since the heat can't be controlled and it burns cloth easily.
I just use another piece of fabric over what is meant to be ironed.
