Everyone loved Ms. PB Vogue suit. And as a result of my latest sewing expedition, I've received requests for quite a few commissions. I'm still being very selective in what jobs I accept as not to overload myself or create a situation where regular life situations compete with "extra" jobs.
I started working on V1015 for Ms. CB. Last Saturday I cut the pattern based on her measurements. Today I will make the muslin for the first fitting. Before cutting the pattern, I read the instructions for making this beautiful gown. There are 143 steps to putting it together. The dress consist of a full lining with a joining foundation. It also includes several flowers at the shoulders and hip area, a godet, and an invisible zipper. Ms. CB selected a sea foam crepe back satin. This dress is a beautiful challenge.
Ms. CB's event is in July 2008, which gives me plenty of time to get it done. Side note on Ms. CB. She is a veteran at making gowns and prom dresses. I was surprised when she asked me to make her dress, which takes the challenge up a notch. I have myself to critique my work and a veteran sewist.
Also on the client cutting table are pants for Ms. Dee. Neue Mode 22928 with variations in eight different fabrics.
