I was asked by my best friend to make her wedding dress, and this morning I finished it. I'm so so happy with it (well y'know mostly! ), and just had to shout about it here. It's the most nerve wracking thing I've ever made for someone, and I'm really nervous about her fiance's reaction, plus the other guests. Her sister is a very acomplished seamstress and trained fashion designer, but lives too far away to have been asked to make the dress, so i'm really nervous of her opinion. Anyway here it is.
But a bit of TLC, a couple of coats of paint, a rub down with a wire brush and some pretty accessories, (draw liners and little hand sewn heart), it's now the perfect place to store everything ready for my next baby due in July.
It's been a wee while since I posted any of my projects here on Craftster, but maternity leave is now underway and I'm celebrating by posting my latest make, and a link to a tute too. I've made a few of these cotton maternity skirts, using my own pattern, some from scratch and some from charity shop skirts. This one is my latest.
I used Robert Kaufmann, Kitchy Kitchen cotton, and stretch ribbing for the bump band/yoke. More details and link to tute on my blog. www.lazyseamstress.blogspot.com
I haven't posted for a few weeks,and not for ages in this forum,but I finished this skirt today and wanted to share. The fabric is my own design printed by Spoonflower,and the pattern I used is from a Japanese sewing book called "Retrospective Is Stylish".
