Its been a bit...and I am glad to say I have been able to catch up on my much needed rest...though I was somewhat forced into it (I was ill).
Despite my "rest" period, I have been able to get in a bit of work (sewing) and play (cooking).
Oh yeah, the wedding has come and gone, and the bride looked lovely. I was/am so proud of myself. I am waiting for the pictures from the bride to do a full post as I was unable to attend. But here are some table-top pictures of the dresses I made for the wedding party (A dressform is on my wishlist if you're wondering what to get me for Christmas :P).
First, the Maid of Honor's dress...AKA Chief Bridesmaid
|Its a long flowing gown with a band detail.|
This was one of the fastest dresses I have made. I used a metallic fabric for the underlining and lined with a single face raw silk in a matching color.
For the skirt part, I skipped the lining and used just the underlay to reduce bulk so I had to finish the joining at the waist with a bias tape cut out from the Raw Silk
|And my usual metallic Zipper|
|I love this color and will def be making something for myself with this fabric|
Next up, the bridesmaid dresses.
|Peplum detail with a button.|
I made four of these dresses and it was a learning process for me. The lace was a stretchy lace and just when I'd think I'd got everything figured out the fabric would head out to a different direction.
In the end, the all turned out well and I conquered my fear of stretch lace!
Until next time, God bless you and complements of the season.
P.S I typed up this post a couple of weeks back and forgot to post it...Merry Christmas.
