I finished my silk ball gown! Yippee! It is done with plenty of time to spare. Now hopefull Miriam will be able to finish hers in time. Due to some unforseen circumstances, I won't be able to help her finish hers.
Now that I think about it, I am not sure how much I have actually said about this dance. A swing dance that we were going to attend late last year was cancelled, (que much distress and anquish. Okay, not really.) In consequence, my brother suggested that we could have our own dance. One thing led to another and things smoothly fell into place so that we have a venue to host it at that doesn't cost anything and a dance instructor who volunteered to call the dance. So we are having a 1940's Swing dance. Dances are fun to plan, especially when you can go out to Starbucks with two of your friends to plan the whole thing. :)
My trusty tools to help me handle the silk:
Unfortunately silk taffeta frays and the back neckline keyhole started coming apart. :(
But I feel like a princess wearing my dress! I am so excited to be able to wear it to the dance tomorrow!
What projects have you gotten stressed, I mean excited over lately?
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
