    Fiiiiinally right?!  heh Well, I’m as happy as can be that this dress is finally completed.  It’s been 2 years in the making and is my first finished object in 2013. Colette’s Macaron dress was the primary reason that I wanted to learn how to sew.  I had seen the dress on Gertie’s blog and… Read More »

    Macaron Bodice: Pre and Post Lining Posted on February 12, 2013

    This is a quick post just to show you the inside of the bodice, pre- and post-lining. I mentioned it before, but never showed you guys…  The image below shows the silk charmeuse armsyce binding I stitched in by hand.

    Macaron Peplum: Part 2 Posted on February 7, 2013

    I’m back once again with more peplum-icious images for you. First things first… in my last post I made a reference to my hippy-hips not being suitable for a peplum.  I’m not sure who was the first to mention that to me, but I’ve always had the general idea that anything that ends at the… Read More »

    Picking up the Macaron Redux Dress Posted on February 4, 2013

    It’s been AGES since I’ve even contemplated working on my Macaron Redux dress.  And as more time had passed, I’ve grown quite wary of the project since I really had no idea if the bodice even still fit me.  It is the month after Christmas and yummy holiday treats after all… So before even picking up… Read More »

    Shoulder Seams Posted on July 12, 2011

    My ‘macaron redux’ dress is officially starting to take shape and look like an actual bodice. I managed to sew the shoulder seams this evening.  These little seams really should have only taken me 30 minutes (tops) to sew up ended up taking a few hours.  Darn this mouth surgery!  It’s making things very difficult… Read More »
