Speedy Sewing

Test-fitting @byhandlondon Elisalex bodice #mondaynightsewing

I can’t believe that February is almost over and I have just a week to finish my sewing for our trip to Orlando!  I’m waiting on some elastic to fix the leg hole for my bikini bottoms, need to pick up some fabric for a coordinating coverup (should be super easy/fast to make), and now I’m working on my dress for our luau dinner.  Originally, I planned on using the By Hand London Georgia dress pattern.  But since I was out of commision for a week with a cold, I’ve changed my strategy and I’m now using the Elisalex bodice/Charlotte skirt combination – I don’t have a whole lot of time to fit a complete dress muslin, and I know the skirt works well for me.  So far so good – I just need to add some width the side seams of the bodice, but everything looks good and I think it’s going to turn out nicely!

Just crossing my fingers that the warm weather trend down there continues – it looked beautiful down there last week, and today was 81.  Please please please stay that way for next week!
