I just came in from being outside with Oliver and is it ever cold! Which is super exciting to me because I have been dying to layer up the socks and leggings and all of the fun new clothes I've bought! I am loving my new wardrobe, but the problem is, now I'm addicted again. I don't want to stop shopping... I still "need" a new pair of jeans (or two).
Anyway, This is another special request piece I did. It was a fun piece to sew. It is my high waist pattern, but cut into a thong at the back. It is made of stretch satin and stretch mesh, with satin ruffles, and lacing tape up the side front. Lacing Tape is awesome. The good stuff is expensive, but it is so much easier and neater than applying your own grommets (I hate applying grommets!). A word of warning about lacing tapes. I have used lacing tapes that have grommets applied through cheap leatherette or too-thin twill tape and the grommets pop out. I've found that with lacing tape, if you are using it on any garment where there will be tension on the laces, invest in good lacing tape.
I am going to finish this pair up with garters, then they will be on their way to their owner!
Okay! I am off to sew, watch documentaries on Sasquatch, and enjoy a day at home after a stressful day at work yesterday...
