Half way into the week, and I’m still working with this fabric. I’m sewing 1¼ inches of strips all way through the orange lining. I’m blown away as to how vibrant it looks. The color just radiates with movement and light. It’s the first time I’ve ever attempted something like this. I’ve pleated fabric before, but never sewn this amount of strips. I have two more yards to finish before cutting the dress. If I finish the fabric this week, I’ll be in a good place to work on the dress next week. This project is very exciting, very fulfilling. I’m hoping to do some more research on fabric manipulation. Amazing stuff. Enjoy!
