I´m cutting and cutting and cutting and...

Finally there is a pattern for the top of my daugther´s dress. It looks a bit funny but it´s because of the drape there is going to be....

This Wednesday we were on a fabric hunt trip together with two of Josefin´s friends, Josefin and Sabina. They all found what they were looking for lucky for that!

The aqua silk fabric was purchased a few weeks ago, but Josefin found that silver fabric which will be a part of her skirt, and the Swarovski crystals she will use as straps, very beautiful... She also found that perfect lining, not easy, difficult colour....

Josefin #2 found this silk fabric, wonderful deep red colour and some silver ribbon for decoration.

Sabina chosed this blue silk and lots and lots of tulle for her skirt.

And now I´m cutting. The aqua dress is ready for basting and this afternoon I´m working on the red one. It´s quite nervous, must do it right, expensive fabric.....but fun, a challenge. I can´t relax until the girls have tried the dresses on and they look OK. Maybe next week or so....exciting!

Of course there were fabric even for me. I purchased the last fabrics for my Hearts of Love quilt.
Now I can finish the design work and start stitching. Will be fun!

I can´t only use silk , even if it´s the most beautiful fabric and fantastic to work with.
Here are the squares I cut out a few days ago transformed into triangles. Next step is making pin wheels of them.....some day....maybe there will be time for that.....
Just kidding, I always take me some time, can´t resist.....

Now I have to go back to the cutting table, my coffee cup is empty.....

Happy stitching,

Helena

I would be crazy with all the pressure to make the dresses if I were you. It's difficult to please three young ladies who, problably, whant to be the most beautifull girls of the prom.Have a good weekend.:)
