Many thanks to all who have contacted me either regarding my whereabouts or who have been in my place…….. I’ve fallen into the wedding vortex and I can’t get out! Friends tried to warn me about how time-consuming wedding planning is. Even though I believed them, I never realized this meant ALL of my time.
Excitement abounds with the August 23 date quickly approaching. One thing I’m excited about is the completion of my Mother of the Bride dress, and I plan to post lots of photos shortly after the wedding.
I must thank Susan Khalje for giving me the confidence to undertake the project. Through her live and virtual classes, I learned how to fit muslins, handle fine fabric and truly transform a pattern into a couture garment. To help celebrate my excitement …….. Susan is giving away her new Cocktail Dress pattern and Video Series Tutorial to one lucky winner!!
from the Susan Khalje website……..
The Cocktail Dress
The Cocktail Dress is a fitted princess sheath, made elegant by the addition of lace at the yoke and in the skirt. It’s constructed from start to finish with a full range of couture techniques: a muslin, underlining, hand stitches, finishing details… and you’ll find it’s a design that easily lends itself to variations; in fact, different bodice and hem treatments are included in the pattern.
You will receive the following:
- Instant Access to Full Length videos for three years.
– Custom pattern designed by Susan Khalje sent right to your doorstep.
– Multi-platform accessibility on i-pads, mobile phones, laptops, etc.
All you need to do to enter your name in the hat is to humor me ;)
For the last two weeks I’ve been sewing night and day on 52 yards of fabric. I bought 3 1/2 yards of 15 fabrics shown below. Twelve are Amy Butler cottons and the other three are similar designs.
Can you guess what I’ve been making?
Everyone who responds with an answer will be entered for the giveaway, but those who guess correctly will be entered twice!
The sewing is wedding related, and the answer along with the winner will be announced between August 24 and August 29th. The deadline for entries is August 21st.
Hopefully I’ll be back before August 23rd, but if not please know I’m spinning from one wedding duty to another. I cannot wait to share the fruits of my labor with you and appreciate you hanging with me during my virtual absence. :)
Good luck to all with the giveaway, and many thanks to the wonderful Susan Khalje for her generosity!
