New Look in progress

I've spent time today working on NL 6150.  Let me say that I love this fabric.  It is simlar to mesh knit; flowers are cut outs overlaid on the mesh is the best way to describe.  I will have to take a close up photo of one layer of the fabric so you can see what I mean.

I remember when I purchased this fabric and when it arrived I thought I will never be able to sew this fabric.  With that negative thinking I have put this aside numerous times for several years.  Dummy me! Sewing it has been a breeze.  I wish I had more of this now.

The top photo was to be a close up of the side ruching/gathers.  This was pinned to side back for basting and fitting.   Because the fabric is so busy it is hard for you to see how it is coming together.

I hope to finish this up tomorrow.  I am taking a personal time off day to see the doctor and acupuncturist.  I also have a window that needs to be repaired and the glass company is coming in the AM.  So in between all of this I hope to finish up the top.

  1. OOH1 This lokks great . Will check back to see the finished product!

  2. Thanks Diana. I finally finished it yesterday-8/3/13.

  3. This fabric color looks very interesting. It would be great to see an ever closer photo of the fabric so that the viewer can really get the feel of how it is like mesh. Sometimes our expectations are completely different from reality. It is really nice to get a pleasant surprise when something works better than you expected.
