Project Princess

Time for the weekly update for Project Princess

Well the muslin is done and we did the fitting for it to get an ideal where changes and snips and tucks needed to be made.

I am now mapping out a plan of order for putting this together.

when she give the peace sign from the back.

So come on back for the weekly updates has we count down to Ms. Taylor's Senior Prom.

The Postman always ring twice.

I love it when I come home and there is a box on the porch.
The two books that I order from amazon arrive today.

The books are not what I thought that they would be. I guess I can use the them more for a resource tool.

I will take some pictures of the inside of the books and post them later.

Project Princess

Last posting we had chosen the fabric for the dress.

Now in order to make this happen it is going to take two patterns M5623, B5182 and some self drafting. I did start the muslin and got the bodice fitted for her and the length. I forgot to take the pictures of her trying on the muslin so I have Lady Gwendolyn standing in for my DD. I will keep you posted with muslin fitting. I still have the bow and the overlay to do. So here are a few pictures until the next time.

Burda 7678

Well on Sunday I did get out and of course some how I found myself at Jo-Ann's how does that happen? Well I got my first Burda pattern 7678 . I decided to keep it simple by doing the boat neck top. I found this taupe color knit for $3.99 and my 40% off coupon who could really walk away from that.
