Special thanks to everyone who commented and complimented on the wardrobes for my DD. On Friday she interviewed with two companies: one for her entrepreneur class and the other with a cyberspace newspaper. She wore the hounds tooth suit. Blessed girl..., she was hired for the cyberspace newspaper on Saturday. Today DD is a Voter Administrator for election. She is growing up and doing exciting things. I'm happy..., sigh, sigh
Saturday I went shopping with Ms. PB. You remember her? I made Vogue 8355 for a dinner party about two years ago.
This time I'm commissioned to make Vogue 1084.
Dinner date March 28th. Back to the shopping experience. The dress will be made of silk dupioni. First we went to Fishman's to just look at all the beautiful fabric candy. Their silk dupioni is $18.00 per yard and the silk taffeta and shantung was $60.00. So went walked over to Vogue; they had the dupioni for $11.99 per yard. We ordered the fabric there. The Evanston store has every fabric in every color. Their silk taffeta and shantung is $30.00 per yard.
I only had one prom dress commission this year; she canceled Sunday. So that leaves more time for me to sew for myself.
Finally, I'm making another clergy robe and am about half way done. Still need to finish DD's purple dress for wardrobe 2.
So that's it for now.
Stay Tuned and Happy Sewing!
Still making rounds to all the blogs I like. See ya soon!
