Over a week to go ... (Posted 19th October 2010)

Sewn the sleeves on, making off-the-shoulder sleeves aren't fun ;_;
I've attached the ribbon, and it looks really cute!
Just got to finish off the elastic and attach the brooch!
And then all I have to do is make a big pretty bow :D
Should be finished by tomorrow! (woot!)

Ok (Posted 15th October 2010)

I modified the bodice to fit, sewn the zip on, and sorted the hem around the bottom of the skirt.
I like easy things :)

achoo ... (Posted 8th October 2010)

Had a bit of a cold this week, so only done a bit of work on this dress.
I have sewn the orange pattern to the skirt, and then applied some fabric glue to seal the fabric (don't want it to fray!)
My friend tried on the bodice .. and it is huge on her! So i've got to take it in a bit ...
Will continue on Monday ...

More progress (Posted 28th September 2010)

Bodice has been sewn together.
Interface has been ironed onto skirt pattern pieces.
Everything has been pinned, but I ran out of time to sew it all together ...

Finally some progres! (Posted 22nd September 2010)

Today I have cut out all the parts for the skirt, including interfacing for the skirt pattern.
I have also cut out the bow.
Will hopefull cut out the top half tomorrow and perhaps start sewing it all together! This dress seems to be quite easy!
