24 Oct I must make an evening gown
I was hoping to tackle the more ambitious projects towards the latter part of the year but here I am in the second month faced with a challenge that has brought my momentum to a standstill…………….. an evening gown…….. for a ball……….. the day after Thanksgiving……… h e l p .
I would have considered an exception to my year of no shopping but both of my daughters are going and you guessed it…………. they need new gowns too. I’ll buy their dresses and make mine – something is wrong with this picture. The last time the entire family went to a ball together was in the spring of 2007 and we all wore new dresses.
Through the years I’ve managed to avoid buying three formal dresses at once and I really don’t know how I’ve ended up in this predicament. What I do know is that I wouldn’t buy three evening gowns again at the same time even if I wasn’t on this year long mission to make my own clothes.
I will be elated if I make a beautiful gown and I’ll be very self conscious if I make a mediocre one.
I’m thinking about this Marfy pattern
H e l p a g a i n . Please let me know if you know an easy and beautiful evening gown pattern. I’m really trying to figure this one out.
