Lamour Dress Pt. 2: Starting, stopping

Since last time I posted about the Lamour Dress, I’ve cut the fabric, lining, and underlining. I took my time and used lunch breaks or slow evenings, without any pressure to get anything done (and the value judgement that comes with failing to do so).

Today I finally started the sewing process. I did the staystitch on the front bodice piece and then basted the fabric and the underlining together. Then I stopped. I’ve been feeling very tired and exhausted lately because of the pain in my back. I know this doesn’t make for a very interesting blog post, but I’m trying to respect my current limitations.

It’s Easter break here in Germany, so I have more time to pick this up again in the coming two weeks because I don’t have to go to work. And I’m definitely going to pick it up again, because I’m actually looking forward to wearing this dress!
