The dress!

Post by Scrap Monkey on Sat 21 May 2011 - 17:39

Here it is. Originally planned as a shirred (smocked) long sundress, and then at Rachel's request a bit more fitted (as much as we could given that she's shaped like a pipecleaner Wink ) and a lot shorter (not to mention ready in time for tonight's party!!). Scatty supervised the sewing in of the zip last night and gave me loads of helpful tips!

.
This was taken first ting this morning, poor kid got told to get changed and stand and pose, she wasn't very awake!

Thank you! Rachel is really into black and white, so I knew I had to buy it for her (she wasn't with me when I bought it).

Next clothing project will be some summer tops for Molly.

Well done Tina. What a super job. It's lovely as well as practical
and wearable.
And Rachel looks lovely. She's grown since we met.

What a pretty dress and an even prettier girl ... what a beauty. Well done on the sewing - the first of many, I suspect.

Ooooooo Tina make me a dress!!! Mr Green lol

Gorgeous, both dress and girly! Though jealous of the fact she can still get away with wearing a dress sans bra!

Hope you'll take a pic of her all dressed up!

Wow i wish I looked half that good when I've just got up. Terrific dress and a pretty girl, both very lovely.
Well done you, I think it looks better than a shirred one would, If I recall, finishing off the ends of shirred rows is a pain as you don't want them to undo, so you either double back, which can misshape or you tie in all the ehds of each row, snore.

I didn't see her Sad . We dropped her off at 10.30 this morning, then they were being taken to have their faces and nails done, followed by the meal and a sleepover tonight. We won't get to see her until tomorrow morning; hopefully someone will have taken a pic though.
