There are three dresses to be made, but two are bridesmaid's dresses, so must remain under wraps until the day, one is a prom dress, which must remain under.... You get it!
Some of this may be involved!
Because I was making all these- with a bit of help from DD1 I trust!- I treated myself to a new gizmo...
This little darling will make putting an invisible zip in a complete doddle! I know, I have tried it! I am able to do it with a standard zip foot, but this one is like magic!
BUT! I have another secret project which I can tempt you with!
Do you know the Black Sheep? It is a craft barn not far from where i live, and mainly sells all things yarn... silk and wool and bamboo blends, knitting needles and crochet hooks and so on and so forth. They also sell tapestry and embroidery stuff, and fairly recently, in the last year or so, they have branched out into quilting cottons. So, they now have a delicious collection of designer fabrics, all sitting beautifully on shelves, and in little packs of fat quarters, with some jelly rolls and so on to mix in.
They also have zips and buttons, and thread, and really too much option for those of us who like to sew.
And they have allowed a few of us to invite ourselves in, to play amongst their fabrics, for a super little mini sewing bee next week!
So I plan to be there with a few bloggy friends to have fun amongst the fabrics, and make a small something whilst chatting and playing!
see you there girls! Roll on the 10th!
