Pink and Brown Dress – update

A month ago I posted this dress. I wore it to two weddings in November. And now I am finally posting some better shots of it (hemmed and ironed).

And here’s an action shot at one of the weddings. (It twirls well!)

Since I wanted to wear this in November, I made a brown shrug to match it. The shrug is kind of a prototype…several things I will change the next time I make one. For example, the seams along the sleeves are too far forward.

In my last post I mentioned some projects I was working on at the beginning of December.  Most of them dealt with sequined or very silky, slippery and otherwise difficult materials. So, long story short, I’m still working on them. Hope to have at least 2 or 3 of them done by the New Year.

Until then – working on the last few Christmas presents (will post them after they have been given).


2 Weddings and Thanksgiving

Tis the season. The rush to Christmas has begun. I’ll be busy making Christmas presents from now through December. I did manage to make this dress for myself though.

I’ll post better photos – this is before I hemmed (or ironed) it.

I’ve already worn it to one wedding and will be wearing it to another wedding this weekend. Perhaps to Thanksgiving as well…

My last project before I completely devote myself to Christmas is a brown jacket to wear with the dress this weekend.
