Today's project is a bridesmaid dress. The size was ordered for the hips on this girl and her top isn't as big as the measurements on this dress. She's also a little short waisted so we're taking the skirt up a little too.

So I can't really find the time to do elaborate blogging. However, I'm realizing more and more the genius of smart phones. So here's a test entry for this morning.
A while back I made the crepe dress from Colette patterns. I idolize Sarai and love her designs. I made the dress reversible ... but did **NOT** realize that this big of polka dots would look so... Minnie Mouse. Working on accessories to tone down the Minnie factor ...

So, this is the first season Mom has ever had an employee and we weren't quite sure what kind of workload to take to keep us both sewing, but this is just plain ridiculous! I think with the economy being what it is, more people are inclined to get things they have fixed rather than buy new. On top of that, the bridal industry has just gotten so out of control and we are drowning in bridal gowns right now... something about 9/10/11 and then 11/11/11 for dates this year...
In totally selfish news, I went to SR HARRIS!! Its a fabric outlet in Mpls, MN and since Mom hates a fair amount of my clothes, the shop bought me fabric for clothing to wear to work. I'm currently working on a jeans pattern to make it fit me a little better (they lied when the said bootcut, it's more of a trouser...) and as soon as I can figure out how to make a dressform actually resemble my shape, I have a bunch of knit fabric for making layering tanks (that actually fit cuz I have the longest torso ever and G cup girls).

And here's something I found last night (I used the word today in my title very loosely... as in the last 24 hours...)
