So I have been talking about this mother of the bride dress right out of an Austen Powers movie..... I'm almost finished, she came yesterday for a final fitting and it was PERFECT!!! She was so happy as was I.
I have to say this time I surprised even myself with how well the dress fit and how well it shapes her body to the point I didn't even need to install boning at the sides for the dress to stay up! All that is left to do is the hand finishing, yes folks a couture gown needs to be finished by hand for a more delicate touch than by machine, that's tomorrow's job.
On another note about deadlines, I gave myself a date of July 10 as the deadline, the wedding is actually taking place on July 16 so even if I'm late with the finishing or if something comes up and I can't have it ready by the 10th I will still be on time! This is a really great way of making sure my projects are all done on time without any undue stress.
Do I sound too much like a teacher now?????
Have a great day!
