Deborah - Garment Sewing

My daughter asked me to make a dress for her to wear to a friend's wedding tonight. Guess when I finished it? About 3 hours before she needed to leave.

The fabric is a cotton/silk blend but still slippery. Thankfully she chose a simple pattern.  She looks so grown up.

ADDED: Cutting out 5" squares for Debra's quilts for Family Promise, from last night:



Lots more to go but it's very fast, especially with the new cutting mat which is much larger.

Your daughter is beautiful! That dress looks fabulous, too. Nice sewing. Happy cutting.

Your daughters are so pretty. Makes me jealous to see them!

I bought that turning 12" mat & boy, is that worth it! I have a little system down that really works. All the little scraps are going into a bag for Angela's Trip around the World quilt.

Are you sewing the charms into 9 patches?

Your daughter is beautiful Deborah & the dress looks so good on her. You are very talented in so many ways.
Hope you reach the bottom of your pile of fabrics soon. I don't like the cutting up part of quilt making.

Beautiful dress, beautiful woman! Love the color, and it's perfect for her. That's quite a pile to turn into squares!

Yep.

Xoxoxo.

Thank you all. Of course, in spite of having maybe 30 pair of shoes (I probably exaggerate) she had to have new ones for the dress.

I doubt I will cut all that fabric!

Thanks Angela. I loved the color too.

Good report on the wedding which was in downtown Atlanta. Everyone liked the dress, including the boyfriend. ;-)
