Well Christmas is over, thank god! This year has been very hard for me, missing my dad and all the pressures of the Holiday were just a little overwhelming. Anyway I survived and got to work on the wedding gown for a couple of days to fit the dress perfectly and we have a perfect fit! In the process it was re-designed and edited until we came up with a very simple, elegant dress the really reflects my daughter-in-law to be, sophisticated and beautiful! Can't wait to post pictures of the finished product, but not until AFTER the wedding, so you will have to wait, sorry. We went to my favourite fabric stores yesterday for more stuff and came away with some amazing fabrics for a cape and shawls and the train etc. Some trim for the very long cathederal veil.
On the school front I have 12 students signed up for the pants module! Great news! Hopefully it will be a mild winter so driving will be a little easier..... If any of my new students happen to be reading this, please be sure that you have the kit purchased from the bookstore for the first class. We are going right into drafting the first night. Welcome to my class!!!!
