Here it is, in progress.
Keep in mind that is is flat on the floor, but when hung will have 3" returns on either side. I decided to make it fully reversible, with the other side less frou-frou. It will hang on a 3" wide continental rod. The sheer gathered fabric is just lying on top - I am playing with the design still. It is leftover fabric from the sheers that will go under the valance. I have covered buttons and tassels to play with, and I may make a fabric flower in a coordinating fabric to see if I like that. There is plenty of fabric left for pillows, which I love making. I am thinking a bolster and a couple throw pillows for Anna's bed, and a couple floor pillows.
Next up: FBA, take 2.
This is the second iteration of my Kwik Sew 3338 'Large FBA', before sleeves and neck binding. See that gaping fabric mid-armsyce?

I've found lots of great resources on FBA's, but none that specifically talk about how to do it when your FBA is hughnormous. Is there a book for extreme FBA's?? I may need professional help....
I did put the neck binding and sleeves on, but didn't do any hemming yet - it may be a PJ shirt anyway. I'll get some pics tomorrow. I tossed it in the dryer and forgot about it when I got involved with the valance.
And a parting shot: Crystal watching me trying to take a picture of myself in the bathroom mirror. She's a sweet girl, our Crystal.

Until tomorrow ~
