In much happier news, Sadie's dress for the Daddy/Daughter dance is almost done. I have a few finishing touches to add, but I snapped pictures of it when she tried it on for me today and I'm pretty excited with what we have so far.
Sadie helped design it (and I sewed it without a pattern) and she picked out almost all of the fabrics (I threw in some extra sparkly velvet at the end since she'd asked for "extra sparkle"). There were so many I felt a little ridiculous sewing it and I was seriously wondering how it would turn out. There are two types of velvet (one sparkly, one crushed), shimmering gymnastics spandex, satin, sparkly crepe and lace. Now that she's abruptly decided that purple was her favorite color in the entire world she's been a little sad about all the pink in her closet and so this is a purple extravaganza:
|Ready for the ball!|
|Daddy wasn't a fan of this one... but it showed the dress so perfectly!|
|A little over two yard of fabric make the skirt super twirly.|
