Yes, I'm Still Here...

You may recall me sharing with you that my daughter is graduating high school this year and I'm using the prom dress I'm making for her as my submission in the "Frankenpattern" online Facebook challenge.  You may also recall that she wants the dress's details to remain secret until the big day.  However, I didn't want to wait until then to document the process, so I'm drafting all of my blog posts so I could publish them once I'm given the "okay".

Today, I struggled with getting the bodice muslin to fit because the pattern I'm using calls for jersey-type knits and I'm using a woven instead.  Simply cutting the bodice pieces on the bias did not provide enough stretch, so I had to redesign and reconstruct the bodice pieces.  You know I love her, right?

Anyway, I will share more details very soon.

Be blessed!

    1. Thanks, Far...I feel myself doing a lot of vacillating on the bodice's design. That is my biggest hurdle, and if I can get through it, I'm sure the rest of the dress will be much easier. Thanks for the encouragement!

  2. Thanks for your sew very recent comment (on saving yours) :-). I replied, but not sure if those get back to original commenter. Thanks again for visiting. God bless you, too! :-)
