Dresses in progress!

"Good morning" everybody! This is a photo of myself which I took this morning......or not. But when I first saw this picture I thought I had forgotten to switch off my web camera!

Actually it is an award that I´ve got from aubirdwoman, thank you very much! This one was perfect for me, even if awards aren´t my "big thing", and I knew at once who would get it from me....Lizzan. I know her opinion about mornings and coffee....

Monday was a big "dress day" by me, three young and beautiful ladies were visiting my studio to try on their dresses. But they didn´t want to show their faces.... First out was "my" Josefin.

Next step is to baste the top and then she will try it again for a better fit. The skirt will be draped and the silver fabric show up under the turqouise....and we will add flowers and shoulder straps made of Svarowski crystals...
No fabric on her back....only the crystals will be there in a cross.


This blue one belongs to Sabina. There will be silk fabric draped on the ligther blue part...and maybe some black flowers.....

There dress will go deeper down on her back when finished.....

Josefin #2 is a lady in red....there will be a ribbon of small silver flowers on the top.....

On the back there will be lacing.....and we will drape the skirt to make it bigger.

Only about 2 1/2 month left to their prom, busy, busy, busy.....

At last, spring is on it´s way and we have flowers in our garden again!

It´s fantastic to find them among the old leaves. This photo is taken last week and they are much bigger now. Our neighbours have other sorts of flowers, white, yellow, purple.......wow, love it!!!!!!

"Springy" greetings from a sunny Sweden,

Helena

Hi Helena,
Thanks for visiting me.
You are so busy, with dresses and your ongoing projects. Like you I dare not count how many unfinished ones I have. I also said I would not start any new ones, but of course I have!
I look forward to seeing the finished dresses.
Ohh and you have some snowdrops! Lovely, I wish we did, the ground is still covered in snow here.
