Always a "Flower Girl" Not a Bride Yet!!!!
Hi friends out there in sewing land! I've been checking out all of your wonderful sewing blogs!!!! You all are so talented, thanks for the inspiration!!!. I haven't posted in a bit, but I've been oh so busy. I've been taking on jobs from a friend who is a fulltime seamstress. I've been busling (sp) and hemming wedding and bridesmaids gowns. I love doing them because you pick up some neat industry techniques when you take them apart. That's the only kind of alteration I like doing? What about you.
Here are some pics of my GD, Kyla, yes, she was in another wedding! She's becoming a pro at 7 years old.
I used Butterick 5901 to make Butterick 3351 (B) since I didn't have Butterick 3351 in my GD's size. It turned out great!
GO MISS DIVA!!!
I finally got something made for myself!!! Yippee!!! Two cotton knit dresses. The fabrics are from Elliott Berman Textiles in NY! I used New Look 6697 (view E) for the black and white print. I used my Evolve cover stitch for the hem. I serged the seams over bias seam binding to prevent stretching and wore a red belt for some color. However, in the pic, I used a piece of scrap red fabric!
I found this black/white/orange cotton knit at Elliott Berman's also! It was the fist piece I saw when I went into the store. I used McCalls 6074. It's such a versatile dress - shopping, movies, or I can wear to work on casual Friday's since we can't wear jeans, this dress would be appropriate.
