A sewing blog - with a bit of knitting, baking, and my life thrown in.

Progress photos - Evening gown
It looks strange on a hanger! The zipper is now in, and we were able to have Becky try it on! It fits and looks wonderful! Though is needs a good iron again, as I did a hand picked zipper (rather than risk doing it by machine, as I just cannot get the hang of it!) and there was no other way to do the zipper than to have the dress bunched up on my knees. It still needs a hem, I'm planning on doing that by hand too I think. Then of course there's the sash, which we've decided is going to go around the front under the bust, and around the back over her bra strap :) It's nearly done! Hurray! A good thing too, the ball is on Friday night!
Hopefully some shots of it being worn soon :)
