All about my journey to make beautiful custom clothing and embroidery projects.

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you and yours'! I haven't had time to post a message in weeks, but I've been checking you out here and there. As usual I've been working on various projects. Didn't do a lot of prom dresses this year, just two. I have pics of the first one...I'll post the second gown later this week. In between making the dresses, I travelled to Dallas, Texas, for work. The orginal plan was to go to Dallas in early April---but the snow changed all that. While there, I spent my free time visiting my uncle who has been sick for a year----but I got visit a few fabric stores down on Harry Hines Blvd. Golden D'Or was the best!
http://www.goldendor.com/retail_store.html They had every fabric imaginable! I purchased a beautiful piece of burgundy cotton organza and silk charmuese. No idea what I'll make with it. I stayed in Dallas until Sunday, so I got to check out the Martha Pullen Sewing Market at the Arlington Convention Center. I had fun browsing the vendors and chatting with other sewers. I even sat down and sewed some labels in pillow cases for a community service project. It wet my appetite for Sewing Expo in Chantilly, VA. My hotel room is already booked!
When I returned to Baltimore, I literally sewed day and night. Ms. Jazzy chose a black taffeta with an embroidered pink organza overlay (fabrics from JoAnns) for her prom dress. Isn't she lovely!
I'm working on a few things for myself to take on my cruise. I'll post pics soon! Happy sewing
