My violet jersey dress is so cosy, I'm glad we had one more chilly day so I could wear it after I did some embellishing. I love that these Alabama Chanin clothes aren't necessarily finished, if one day you get the urge to add some fancy.
So I cut out some leaf-shaped appliques from a tee shirt that Giles brought home from school and hand-stitched them on the front panel. Then scattered a few seed beads around.
Next time I'm abandoning the buttonhole stitch in favor of a straight quilting stitch. It will be so much faster, and I can turn on a dime instead of trying to make up something legitimate to get around corners.
