I've been sewing like a mad woman for the past three days finishing two dresses for myself and nearly finishing my niece's dinner dance dress and jacket. She needs to try it on for the final fit before hemming and sewing the lining to the dress. I took off Thursday, Friday and today to do some sewing and a few things around the house. It was a very productive time and am pleased with my accomplishments.
I'll have pictures later this week. Today I need to make a run to Hancock for more fabric. I didn't get enough for the jacket/coat for the banquet dress. I really want to try to complete a large portion of it today. The dinner is Sunday evening. The jacket/coat is simple so it shouldn't take long to finish. Also, my niece is coming today to try on her dress. So I've making a lot of progress of the projects.
Next week I'll make the second muslin for my other niece's prom dress. Then I start sewing for another client, who is attending the same dinner dance as my niece Dominique. Meanwhile, DD is itching for another dress and some knit tops. It never ends.
BTW- It was about 45 degrees on Saturday. Sunday morning we got several inches of snow. It's still winter in Chicago.
