It was my Fabric Mart contribution for April. I used their Kit, which I got pattern and fabric for free. I really do like the dress though! You can read about the project on their blog.
I thought for sure I was going to be able to squeeze in the Burda dress but alas...no time. My sweetheart of a daughter pleaded with me to "take in Ks dress just a little bit" at the bust. So there goes any time I would have used to work on my dress! Soon though as that was intended to be my April Burda project.
For May, again, plans are being kept pretty light. I have a little more free time as DDs uncle (on dad's side) generously sent money to cover lots of her end-of-senior-year expenses. So she purchased outfits for some of the events she has coming up instead of having me sew some things.
I feel a disconnect right now from sewing (I know, I know...it happens) and just can't motivate myself to even make a sewing plan! (isn't that sad?!). Even looking at all of my newly acquired patterns isn't doing it for me.
So I'm going to keep it easy and say that in May I plan to sew:
*My Fabric Mart contribution
S8138 (from the latest release) in a textured olive crepe
*An outfit for graduation and/or the graduation party
For graduation I'm thinking M7167 with the solid back in crepe
For the party I'm thinking easy/relaxed flowy sundress - M7350
*My May Burda
I love this dress!!!
*An outfit for the Beyonce concert
I scored cheap-o seats so DD and I will go. My May Burda or the FM project (over white skinny jeans) may be one in the same as the concert outfit...We shall see!
We had a little prom dress mishap but I have a recovery plan. Here's a (dark and tiny!) sneak peek
There'll be an overlay with the illusion attached to a belt from the satin. So I have to make the overlay (won't take long, no hemming of the illusion is required - yay!), fix the back (I'm going to change the illusion to match the 'v' of the lace), hem the illusion neckline and sleeves and DONE!
That's totally a lot! Prom is a week from Saturday. This has to be done, for my sanity, before I go to bed on Sunday.
