2 projects in progress - a leopard maxi and a peplum brocade top
I adore the ease and comfort of a maxi, but really wanted something with more coverage as many maxi dresses tend to be strapless or spaghetti-strapped. I decided to add short sleeves, but as I pondered the dress on the far left, it seemed to skew on the side of being dowdy / old-fashioned. To modernize it a little, I did a little snipping and gave the collar an angular, asymmetrical look. It's a small change and it probably still doesn't exactly look youthful, but I like it much better.
My second project is a peplum brocade top. Inspired by this Vera Wang dress, I fell in love with the notion of beading brocade. It seems like such a deliciously luxurious idea. I just recently finished putting the top together so I still need to lay out the bead design and then bead by hand.
How do you tackle your projects? Do you finish one before starting another or do you start multiple ones as the mood strikes?
