I hope you will forgive me from skipping out on posting last week, my husband defended his PhD thesis in Chemistry and there were many celebrations to be had! Here he is, just finished and looking pleased as punch:
I'm so proud of him.
And since I'm posting a photo of him, I'll post one of myself in my new shirred dress:
I put up a video on making a shirred dress a few posts ago and finally got around to making one the other day. It was an incredibly simple process, though working with the elastic thread was... interesting. However, I really like how the dress turned out and will probably make another one soon, despite the annoyance.
