Chicken Fried Steak and Old Friends...

4:04 PM 7 Comments A+ a-

So I was able to finish the skirt in time for dinner with the fam and the best chicken fried steak in the world...
but sadly, the blue dress did not get finished in time to wear to the wedding shower for my sweet friend Lance and his beautiful bride-to-be Tessa! (I know everyone was on the edge of their seats about that one ;) However, I did get it finished when I came home Sunday afternoon and I have a graduation this week so I think I'll wear it for that (and hopefully get better pictures!)

This is a close-up of the bodice. SO complicated, especially since the fabric kept picking, but worth it in the end...
This is what I've been working on today. I promised myself I wouldn't buy more fabric after re-doing my sewing room and discovering just how much I had, but I've had my eyes on this pattern and fabric from Etsy for awhile and I finally decided to bite the bullet and get them both.
Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day! And thank you to our amazing Veterans and current Service Men and Women. We appreciate you more than you know!

That blue dress is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see the polka dots dress all made up too. :]

Wow, that is amazing! I don't even really know how to use a sewing machine, so kudos to you and that gorgeous detail work, keep it up!

I've had a problem with blogger that hasn't allowed me to comment until now. I love your skirt and the blue dress is great too. I can see that the green polkadot dress will work out in the end too. Just a bit of tweaking needed.
