Iron woman

Experimenting wiith my iron and the silk for the wedding dress. As some of you know, water will stain silk, but it appears on this fabric the very ironing leaves marks. And I will have to press seams.

I’ve had the tip to carefully wash the fabric, I might do that with the bodice, but I dread washing the skirt.

A wedding dress to be

I’ve been asked to do a wedding dress. Now everybody I know who does any sewing, literally everybody, have warned me about aout wedding dresses, but hey, what could possibly go wrong, right?

There’s no pattern, just at photo of what she wants, so first there was the construction of the pattern.I made the muslin from and old duvet cover. It was thin enough to resemble the chiffon that will be on the outside My son, coming in, stood silent for a moment and then carefully asked, “She’s getting married in that?” The bride-to be, however, understood that it’s a dummy and didn’t faint.

The trying on of the muslin went really well (so far so good) but I actually hesitated before cutting the beautiful silk, simply because it’s so pretty. And expensive. But everything went fine.
