I have been surprised and excited that my Femme Capelet has been a success! I sewed this capelet only for me but I have had women stop and ask where I purchased it, and when I told them I made it they wanted to purchase from me!! I also have come to realize what a powerful marketing tool the internet is and have had orders for my capelet on line. So I have been busy working full time and sewing the orders at night. I enjoy making this so this is a bonus that I can sell something I enjoy doing!! In the midst of this its that time of year when my husband and I are invited to dinners and parties. I needed a little black dress and came up with this design. I like hearts and the colour hot pink so I combined these two for this dress. I used a heavy crepe satin for this dress.
I also added inseam pockets using the left over cut out hearts
Place pockets about 3 inches from waist
sew together along seam
fold pocket over and press and pin skirt together at seams
sew seam but do not sew pocket together (leave opening)
Now sew pocket together around curves (not down the center)
