K and her mom inquired about wanting a prom dress made – theme was Alice in Wonderland! What fun! K found and purchased a knit fabric she loved for her corset. Yikes! I made it work and used a fusible stabilizer on the fabric; then underlined it with a medium weight fabric. I fully lined the corset with a black medium weight fabric. The corset turned out fabulous and was paired with a black and white layered tutu! I made the tutu using a crocheted headband and about 14-16 yards of tulle, each color, of which I had to cut 6″ wide strips of all the tulle! The place where I purchased did not have the tulle on a spool).
K’s mom said she loved her dress – still, after prom was over! I’m happy I could do that for a nice young lady! K wants to learn how to sew and her mom wants a t-shirt quilt! So, I’ll be hanging out with them soon!
My current project is a wedding dress for a friend’s daughter. I am also looking for employment! I’ll share more about the dress later! I have lots of personal sewing I would like to work on; but, I definitely needed to finish some donation quilts for my guild – that’s where my sewing retreat came in! Well, a friend of mine invited me to their beach condo for a combo birthday (hers and mine) and sewing retreat! I had a blast – the beach, girl-time, sew-in, and a trip to a local quilt shop! And, was able to piece a couple of quilts, too!
