Thank you and Some Side Sewing

I wanted to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments they left me on the Olivia Gown.  I really enjoyed the whole process of making it and then seeing it come to fruition.  I definitely see more of these types of projects in my future.  They really get the creative juices flowing.  Here are a couple of professional pictures that were taken that night from the gala photographer.

On another note I have some good news that also came from this gala, one of our regulars that comes and sees us happen to be at the gala and really liked my gown.  Her daughter is getting married next year and last weekend she asked me if I would make her gown for her daughter's wedding.  I was in complete shock.  I saw her again last night and she confirmed with me again, so, it looks like I'm going to be doing a making sewing project.  I will add that I have sewn for her once before and she loved what I make for her so since this is a second piece, I think it's safe to say I have a permanent customer.

Of late, I've not done any sewing for me as we finally got our house rented out and my husband and I had to rush and get some renovations done at the house.  Our tenants were suppose to move in until April but when they told their landlady they were leaving, she kicked them out.  We basically got a month and a half worth of work done in two weeks.  This is basically why I've been a little incognito of late.

I have been sewing for others.  I had to make an underskirt for a flower girl dress

and a garter for the bride.

Hopefully I'll have some action pictures after the wedding which is next weekend.  The pictures above were taken with my iphone.  That's all I have for now.  I hope everyone had a fabulous crafty weekend.

What can you do, sometimes life gets in the way of sewing. That dress is killer.

Thanks for your comments on my dress! I wore it today and everyone seemed to think the back was ok. :)

You look glamorous in your dress!
