I finally finished my Rooibos dress, after an unheard of three muslins. Well, two were redos of the skirt section only, but that is still quite a lot of preparatory sewing for me! I did a little stash busting for this, using a grey woolen pinstripe that was purchased several years ago. To tie in even more with my fall sewing palette, I made chartreuse piping and the facing has some navy in it. In denial of the wool’s itch factor at first, I eventually did a sort of half lining in silk habotai (the facing was already sewn in, and I really liked the corner points).
