Holy Bat Ties!

I have been merrily rolling along on the Hot Patterns Kimono dress, which so far is going very well.

I was pressing the waist ties, when suddenly I realized how very very long they were. I took a picture as proof....



That is me (in my Mickey Mouse pjs, yeah!) standing on my very tippy toes holding up one of the waist ties as high as I could. Granted, I am slightly above hobbit height, but STILL, those are some Seriously Long Ties. And these aren't even as long as the pattern called for because I ran out of fabric and had to shorten them a good 6-10 inches!!

And if your recognize that fabric, yes I am using the scraps from the Jalie dress I made for a coworker. Thrifty and environmentally responsible, yay!

LOL! I'm not close to hobbit height and some of them are crazy long. These are...wow. Maybe they designed that for RuPaul in stilettos?

That is long. I am only slightly above hobbit height myself. Can't wait to see what this turns into! Happy sewing!
