Easter Dress #3 completed with Headaches.. One more to go!!!!!

                                          Easter Dresses for my Granddaughters  are getting done!
                                                          Slowly but Surely!!
                                                                 
                                                                            From Here:
                               


                                                                           To Here!!!
             
This is dress #3. It is for Emily. The inner bodice
does not drag like the photo is showing .. Bad
photographer.ha The dress is really pretty in person.
Emily loves it, and I am so proud.

The rest of the story... It didn't go from photo #1
to photo #2 without some headaches.. I  finished
it  up , on  Thursday.. When Emily tried it on,
the waist was too tight. SIGH!!! This girl
has a 25 in waist, and I was trying so hard, to
make sure it fit nicely, and not droopy.
 so, what did I have to do? Take the zipper
back out [of this sheer, embroidered fabric..not fun]
take satin waistband and lining out , and cut another
one.  So yesterday.was no fun!!!

Today.. I am cutting out dress #4.. Just like this one,
but in a coral color.. for an even smaller young lady..

SOON  and Very soon... I will be back to making
some spring clothes for ME...

  5. Thank you Stacy.. Appreciate the hug.. I will probably need it, I just cut out the last one.. [Just like this one but coral]. Well the lining fabric is so slippery, it keeps slipping off the table.. Will be fun sewing, I am sure.Ha

  11. Judy, I'm sorry that you had problems with this dress. The good thing is Emily loves it and you had enough fabric to correct the problem.

    1. Thank you Cathe. The girls are really happy with them, and that makes me happy. The fabric was really delicate, and a night mare to pick out... Don't want to do this again for a long time.ha
