Almost Done.

My weekend goal is pretty much accomplished - it's nice when things go according to plan, and I've actually given myself ample time.  I definitely like to be 'done' with things ahead of time, and not rushing at the last minute! Just a little top stitching left, but that will wait until the bride can try them out with the dress.  And give her final approval.  

Hopefully these straps will look and work the way we envisioned!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  I don't think the organza base shows as much on top of skin as it does in the photo - we'll see.

Did I mention how slippery organza is to sew on?  Sheesh.  And did I mention how the lace on my mom's dress was tiered and sewn in a way that made it a little difficult to get good lengths of lace?  I hated to cut into it more, but I did have to.  A pile of scratchy tulle netting is left.  Still makes me feel a bit guilty.

This is actually a weight off my shoulders.  I knew it had to be done, but I knew DOING it would require a good stretch of uninterrupted time.  Thank heavens hubby is self-sufficient when I'm in my cave :) 

And Ruby doesn't care as long as she gets a little sun.


  1. Drat! I can't get the pictures to show up! I'm glad you were able to carve out the time to you needed to meet your goal!

  2. Now I can see the pictures! I think the straps look perfect. I hope the bride agrees!

  3. I think it look good, I know what you mean with the slippery fabric, It is not fabric of choice but a have to thing with wedding dresses.


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
