Here’s one of my Christmas gifts that were actually delivered on time. Only there’s two buttons still missing, that I’ve meant to sew on.

The adorable reciever is my nephew and his mom got a matching night gown.

Here comes the bride

Well not really, just her dress. She wanted a light hippie dress, and showed me some photos of a dress she’d seen online. This one as opposed to the photo is all silk, which has been a dream to work with, It’s a silk duchesse with a silk chiffon on top and with lace sleeves.The chiffon dress is wider than the duchesse one underneath to give flow and width without being bulky.

I’m really happy with it and the bride seemed to be too.

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.
