I haven't been blogging, because I've been sewing! For those of you who hang around for quilting stuff, just move on. This post is all about my mad seamstress skills! Hah! Honestly, sewing for others causes me great amounts of stress. Not because I don't know how, or can't do it. Just that overwhelming feeling that perfectionism is necessary. The things I would let slide in my own families clothing, I can't for someone else. Anyway - moving on to the whole story.
After it was all tried on and pinned hemmed, I brought up the idea of a belt/sash. We had both been thinking the same thing! It totally made the dress.
She picked it up this morning (Monday). The wedding is this Saturday (in Seattle) - hopefully I'll be able to share a picture or two after the wedding. And then I'm sure it will suffer the fate of most bridesmaid dresses. Into the closet for a requisite amount of time, until it can be gotten rid of without guilt, or ever having been worn a second time!
