On to the next project
This is the chosen pattern for the prom dress. This is what I will be working on this week, so there may be some delays in posting. I might do some posts on the progress, we shall see. Today, we are going to get the fabric for it from our favorite store in Berkeley. This dress has 8 yards of fabric, if your fabric it 45 in. wide and 5 and a half if you are lucky enough to find a 60 in wide fabric. We want to make it out of silk shantung, and most of that is usually 44 to 45in. This isn't including the 6 yards of lining also!! There is also boning in the bodice to add to the challenge. The instructions are pretty easy and I should complete it by Friday at the latest.
I'll take a picture of the fabric and post what the final color decision is.
Our weather is finally getting a bit more normal, and my AC is working. Turns out there was never anything wrong with it according to the AC guy. Maybe after such a long slumber, it had a bit of a hick-up. At least I can turn it on and sew in comfort.
Caitlin's presentation went very well and the teacher was very impressed,so I think she will get a very good grade.
Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.
