Progress, progress

Well the wedding gown is coming along very nicely! We had the final fitting Saturday and I just had to take in the seams around the hips to make it more "mermaidy"!!!  I also made a minor adjustments to the bodice to make sure no wardrobe malfunctions on the wedding day.  This is my first bride that will also have a reception dress.  I was disappointed about this as I wanted her to wear my dress all day!!!  Yes, I consider these gowns my dress!  A statement of me!  My pride and joy, just like a new born!  So I'll have to settle for seeing it sashay down the isle of the church and that's it!!!

I did find that I need a stiffer petticoat netting to make the gown set out more.  So I'll be off to A Fabric Place on Friday to pick up some.  Should have gone there first instead of Joanns!

I'm also working on a wrap dress that I'll be wearing in the ASG fashion show in St. Louis next week!  I'm using an African print from Ghana.  It's a waxed cotton and the colors are luscious and vibrant.  I'm making View A with the piping.  Until next time!  Happy Sewing!
