Peak of the season
Lilies are favorites and they are putting on a show today.
Another one I have come to love are crocosmia. They are just starting to bloom. That red is so beautiful with those little pokes of yellow green.
I am feeling so much better today! I left the house for the first time in several days and enjoyed the sunshine and cool, lovely weather. I had enough energy to do a little grocery shopping, sweep and mop the floors and start on my teal linen dress. After saying I would not make a muslin for such a simple style, I ended up not only making a muslin but completely redrafting the bodice. I could tell from just pinning together the paper pattern how odd the fit was—gape-y neckline, too wide shoulders, yet tight through the bust. I am having a hard time picturing the body is was designed to fit. I hope my work yields something wearable.
