Finds (Frivolous)

Sewing Shenaniganz

Dude. I have a wedding this weekend.

But, it’s not my wedding.

Although, the director of the department did call out to my open-office environment last Friday, “Hey, Nell, when’s your wedding again?”

All of the heads turned.

Me: “Ummm, it’s not my wedding. I’m just going to it. To dance and stuff.”

So, yeah, that was a thing and it happened.

After I couldn’t find a dress I liked for a price I liked, mi madre suggested I make my own.

Not a bad idea. Wanna see some pics o’ the process? Thine wish. It is my command.

This was my concept-sketch. Well, one of many. The rest are scattered about notepads throughout my office and house and bookbag. And most aren't this complete, either. Only a neckline here, a skirt there.

So, I’m looking for a full, swing-y skirt because: dancing. Of course. My forever-priority.

Also, the material is really light and flowy, so I decided I wanted a nice cowl neckline and promptly Pinterest-ed up some mad hot research.

Frankendress! Nothing like using three patterns from three different suppliers from three different eras.

But, basically: great skirt pattern, cowl neckline and badda bing, badda boom, that’s the plan, Stan.

Yeah. The cutting out was a feat in itself. The bodice is close to being done. Maybe. I need to find an invisible zipper. And sew a skirt and a waist band and a hem and some sleeves.

And find my red fascinator.

I fly out to the wedding on Thursday.

I have two nights left.

Pray for me. (LAUREN, DO YOU BELIEVE IN ME??)
