Design Journey CAL Huge Tote; Design Journey: Chickee's Dress
It's coming along, but I'm switching back to the First Communion Dress for a few days. Last week was SO productive, and this week has been full of starts and stops. Unfortunately, this week is more common. I did Fasten off a project two days ago (the gold sneak peek). Also, I think I have a better solution for the FC dress. I wasn't liking how the skirt fabric was becoming. It was seeming too dense and stiff, not good enough drape. So, I put it aside. (I didn't frog it). And I started crocheting the skirt right onto the bodice in rounds, like I said I didn't want to do originally. I skipped some stitches out of the original stitch pattern to make the fabric lighter and we'll see what happens. It has more of a "random" and whimsical quality now, which might be nice compared to the very structured bodice.
