Zebra Party I complete

Stephanie said she like the Vogue pattern better, so I made that one which is for a 34 bust. Close enough and then she can wear layers if it cold out at the parades. 

 Clearly, it will spectacularly noticeable at a parade, where most people still dress fairly normally. It is meant to button in the front like an actual robe, but it's lycra! So I sewed it shut. If it fits over the dummy with no struggles, it will fit Steph. I also didn't finish any seams or do facings because it's lycra. Come on!
 It's pretty trippy and awesome!
 Under the sleeves are hidden side pieces with elastic, so the waist should be fitted.
I am quite pleased! I have a few more things to make before we leave, but I am being productive and sewing again! Whoo hooo!

This may be in part because Andrew went to NY on business from Tues-fri so I was forced to amuse myself. Which I did! I watch every episode of Downton Abbey in order! In four days! Yeah, that's healthy right?

I did complete all of this boring hand sewing while watching season 1 on Netflix. Hemmed a skirt, sewed on many missing buttons and replaced the straps on my brown silk dress blah blah blah.

I love loveeee Downton Abbey. Then I watched all of season 2 that has aired so far, which PBS has online. It was awesome. Now I am just sad that the Walking Dead and Downton Abbey are both on Sundays and I have to work! Pooh. This SNL skit cracks me up, trying to sell the show to guys on Spike TV. 


  1. Love the SNL skit, so funny! Stephanie's caftan is so cool, I can't wait to see the photos of both of you dressed up for Mardi Gras!

  2. IT'S AWESOME! I can't wait to see it on a real live person. Now I have to make mine, le sigh.

  3. This is EPIC! I cannot wait to see pictures of you both at Mardi Gras!

  4. That's a fun caftan... You have to take pictures of it in action.

    It's great that there's another female out there who loves the Walking Dead and Downton Abbey... I thought I was just strange :)
