It's Prom Season

 Hi fellow sewers!  It's prom time again.  I have three clients all with interesting tastes.
The tangerine short dress is being made in red Casa satin from Joann's for my niece's sophomore dance.  I drafted a muslin using Wildginger PMB software.  She tried on her muslin today and it fit perfectly, just had to tweak the bra top a bit. 

For this red/black gown, I couldn't believe it when I found the perfect fabric at A Fabric Place.  I showed Michael, the owner, the pic and he said he had something that would work.  That store is truly a treasure trove of great finds.  If you are ever in Baltmore, please check them out. 

Not sure what color this gown will be, meeting the client on Wednesday....will keep you posted.
I've got lots planned, I will be burning both candles for a few months.
I have an altar cloth to make for Lent and a pair Ravens curtains a nephew.
I will also be leading a group of fellow ASGers at our upcoming workshop on March 19. 
We're making this swing jacket.   Didn't really have enought fabric to make the placement of the center panel.  So I'll be making it over in a couple of different fabrics to take to class.  It a really simple jacket, takes about 2 hours to make including cutting time.

Those are 3 pretty dresses, and I love the red and black fabric you found. You have 3 lucky young ladies wearing your prom dresses.

Hi there,
Just passing through. I saw you followed another sewing site and wanted to pass along a giveaway that's going on on my blog (The Dress-up Drawer) for a SUPER cute pattern.
Cute blog! Sorry for the random comment!
