Finally we have started.....

.....a long journey towards my daughter´s prom on the 7th of June. She has purchased the fabric for her dress, pure silk in a very beautiful aqua colour, 10,5 meters. Prefect for her hair and skin, she has a little bit of red in her hair and some freckles when she gets sunburned. I tried to take a picture but it´s even more beautiful in real daylight.

As that fabric wasn´t the cheapest one, we decided to try the pattern on an old, cheap piece of
fabric. Not the right colour but nearly the same feeling....

If I tell you the truth there is no pattern for this dress. I had to take that fabric and try to drape it on a top with needles. And it came out ok for her. The skirt will be long, of course, even more draped, bubbly, with rhinestones and beads and flowers....oh, my God, no time for rest.....


Her back will be naked.

About the shoulder-strap, they will be made of rhinestone, but this was the only thing we had at home for the moment. I´m not going to give her away as a present, she´s to cute for that....

But this is not the only dress I have to sew, I´ve promised two of her friends making theirs too.
I think I´m busy....

Take care,

Helena

Oh, my! You are going to be so busy. Your daughter's dress sounds like it will be very beautiful. You must be very talented to be able to sew it without a pattern. Good luck.
