i just made this for my friend's wedding... she was 4 monthes along with her second baby on the big day.  her belly was bigggg and the dress suited her perfectly

i loved how it obviously couldn't hide the belly... but the way the skirt swooped, it didn't make the belly the main attraction.  i'm hoping to make this again as a non wedding dress... the mock up i made had a contrasting belly gather cuz i ran out of tea dyed fabric... but look how cool it turned out

i found this how to pattern

so i'm gonna give it a go..... gives me an excuse to go buy the softest gaudiest tye dye'esque stuff i can find.  knowing al, he'd LOVE the cherry tassles hahahaha.  we were discussing his neon yellow wheel chair.... he said he asked if they had any tye dyed colored... they said no.  he said 'then give me the next most obnoxious color." hahahha  so the wilder and more unique the better Smiley  originaly i'd thought i'd try the beanie hat pattern cuz i was not sure how to decrease it down correctly.  thought i'd share a pic of the man behind the inspiration Smiley we camp with him every summer at max yasgur's farm out in bethel... near the woodstock site. 

and m*babylon Smiley  i feel odd calling it a stump too.  he said they now call them something much more pc like 'diminshed appendage' or something haha but he pointed out, that the socks they sell to put on them are still called 'stump shrinkers' and stump socks.   Roll Eyes

althea's up there with the bad cats.  used to be that my brand new extra wide ironing board was her refuge from my husband's cat.  she could be safely up and away from the evil one.  but besides the ungodly amount of thick black hair she'd leave all over it... i got tired of her assuming that she could still prowl around on it while mama was pressing her sewing projects.  i spent half my time trying to shoo her away from the steaming iron.  other than that, she mostly just stalks around the machine playing this wonderful game of "can i do it without stepping on or knocking over anything?"  which rarely goes well seeing as how she's got a small cat mentality but gained much girth over the years.  (much like mama) here's a pic of said game

here's one of her favorite fang scratchers.... my thread spool... especially as its moving

now a days, she thinks my new bamboo knitting needles are giant tooth picks for her  Angry  hehehe

29  vogue v2842 wedding dress in Sewing Pattern Reviews by francie pants on: July 18, 2005 09:32:23 PM
okayyyyyyyy.... anyone have ANY experience with this pattern?  i think it might be relatively newish so probly not.   

i'm making it for my friend's wedding... and i've run into an instruction i don't understand.  for the pleats on the belly, it says to baste/top stitch about 4 inches in from the seam(from dot to dot).  okay fine.  then it says to pull out only the top pleats's basting stitches.  okay again.  but then it never says anything about pulling out the rest later.... or going back over with a stronger stitch.  can you leave a basting stitch like that in a wedding gown?HuhHuh?  wouldn't the weight of the dress eventually pull the stitch out and pleats would fall?Huh  so for now, i just have pins holding what should be basted.  the more i look at it, the more i think its supposed to have stitches.  grrrrr.  here's pics of what i got done tonight.  never mind the 2 tone muslin mock up.  i meant to make the whole thing in tea dyed muslin, but ran out.  and i was using 45" muslin instead of the 60" the pattern calls for.  hence the weirdness.

i feel for you babe!!! i'm makin my friends wedding dress for the end of august, when she'll be 3 monthes pregnant.  and we thought that was ackward haha.  i was gonna try to sway her towards more empire waist stuff to avoid last minute issues but her bridesmaid who's 3 monthes more pregnant kept saying "ooohhh noooo it'll just draw attention to it."   so i've gotta figure out how to make this so she don't squash the ponch.

i tried talking up doing a corset style back but she's not biting.  Sad  good luck!!!!!! you've got courage makin one for a sister almost full term hahha
