I know you were terribly afraid I was going to update with yet another post on why you shouldn't use vintage patterns that resemble aliens, but worry not!
With the neckline still looking vaguely Mormonish, I'm pleased to say that I'm finally finished with the Pushing Daisies dress! After fighting with it for what seemed like every step of the way, I'm generally really happy with how it turned out.
I do think I might take out the sleeves at some point just because it would make the dress a bit more versatile to wear in different seasons, but I'm not touching it any time soon. (Plus, it's much too cold to really venture out without tights, let alone sleeves!)
You can find the entire schedule here, in case you want to go back and see what I've documented to get here.
And of course it would be the Pushing Daisies dress if I didn't make some PIE!
For those unaware, the main male character, Ned, is a piemaker. He makes delicious and amazing looking pies in every episode. Chuck, the main female character, sneaks around and makes special pies for her aunts with gruyere baked into the crust.
I don't think I can say this with enough emphasis but WOW. The gruyere in the pie crust is the best decision anyone has ever made. Ever. I mean, yeah the apples and cinnamon and sugar is good and all, but I'd eat the freaking butter, flour, and gruyere all day long.
And now for your entertainment, I present a story in 3 parts.
Yay, I made a pie.
I am going to eat this pie right now.
Hehehe I have pie.
(For those unawares, the bf and I don't have a weird no touching policy, it's from the show.)
Edit: Boyfriend finally tasted the pie and our conversation went something like this.
Me: What did you think?
Bf: It was awesome, of course.
Me: But what did you think of the gruyere? You could tell when you bit into it, right?
Bf: You mean the lapdance happening in my mouth? Yeah, I could tell.
