BUT THERE HAS BEEN SEWING! Stress reduction through creativity! But still, I've crapped out of getting good pictures
This dress is in progress and almost finished - Its a frakenpattern using the bodice from 1612 and the skirt from 2580 - not much difference you think - except I didn't like the gathering in the center front of 1612, so rather than modify the pattern I snatched the skirt from the other. Its coming along really well and only needs a hem.
I have a bolero made for stretch knits is in it's second muslin (but in static tulle, for my friend's wedding) (Making things for people in a fabric that the pattern was not intended for when that person is 200 miles away is somewhat trying) (happily it has only two seams)

A baby's dress is going to be made with cotton and lace for a christening next month. However, the baby keeps growing. I have measurements, but I'm going to put in some serious ease. Babies are unreliable.

and my boyfriend has requested this, in lime seersucker for the end of June. (Have I mentioned the now *7* weddings of the summer? the poor man needs something other than wool.)

Did you have time to make a dress for yourself to wear to the wedding in between your unselfish sewing?ReplyDelete
For one wedding I was a bridesmaid, and had a pre-approved RTW dress, For the others, I've been wearing things I already had.Delete
However, happily, this sewing for other people nonsense is almost done.
