Still sewing but not much time

It is that time of year, the end-of-school madness. Graduation is 19 days away, prom was last weekend and my 18 year old looked incredibly stunning. This week is 4 track meets plus all of life and work.


I am sewing just a bit. Finished a BWOF wrap top. 3/2008 #113, it is very cute. I am working on a muslin (yes a muslin, something I don't do very often) of a BWOF dress for graduation. I am just making the bodice and I need to make a few changes.


And since I feel the need to add pictures to the post, here are a few:
Prom dress:
I forgot to take a picture of the back and it is such a pretty design, so here is a crop from a group picture:

    Oooooooh Very pretty! Did you make it? I wanted to make dd's prom dress, but she didn't want me to, then she wasn't going to go, then she got asked and was going to go, but then decided NOT to go. The boy that asked her, went all out too -- the whole story is kind of funny.

  3. Yes, did you make this prom dress, Lori? It's very pretty and orange is such a hot color right now. If you made it, I want to know more about the embellishment.

  4. Beautiful dress! I love the back to this one too - it makes it so different than anything else I've seen out there.
