Here is a photo of all the the parts before we started cutting! Ten yards of fabric, a few yards of trim, light-weight woven fabric sewing machine needles, zipper, satin pins and thread.Found out along the way, not to trust a teenager with her dress size.
Pattern dress size too small. Altering the pattern = priceless.
Here is the bodice and part of the sleeves. Mishap with the iron and my applique pressing sheet. Pressing sheet worked like a dream through one sleeve ruffle. Second sleeve ruffle, the iron melted the taffeta through the pressing sheet. Thank goodness there was enough left over to make a third ruffle, that was sewn on backwards not once - but twice!
Mustard yellow pool table is not attractive at any time, let alone late at night! On the other hand, pool tables make a great sewing/quilting/craft table much to the disappointment of the hubby!
The next two photos are super blurry! Taken with my Blackberry to pacify my thespian! She was absolutely sure the dress would never be done.
Totally not sewn, just pinned.
