I’ve been super busy, working full time, moving twice, and planning all the last minute details for the wedding (t-minus 1 week!) I’ve hardly had a minute to sew, let alone post on this blog. I’m not even entirely sure where my camera is right now so I don’t have any photos of anything I’ve done recently.
In this last week almost everything is finished so I think with the help of my mother I can make one last dress to wear as my going away dress at the end of the wedding. After lots of dress shopping I finally fell in love with a dress that I can’t afford.
1. The color: not white or even ivory, it is called “cloud grey” and is darker in person than in their website photo.
2. The pricetag: $298.
I think I can copy it by modifying the Lisette Passport dress pattern.
The plan is to get it cut out and pinned together tomorrow then sew as much as I can before handing it over to my mother to finish up while I’m working. That being said it would be fantastic if I could finish the whole thing tomorrow, it being such a simple design and all.
We’ll see if I can squeeze this one in with all the chaos this week, if not I might have to break into my “emergency dress” fund and buy the BCBG dress.
