Upcoming project for February

I have something different to do in February. I'm pretty excited to do a new design. These pictures are for inspiration. The main thing I need to capture is the ruched bodice and she wants some bling. The back will be a full back and I'm thinking fabric covered buttons instead of a zipper.

I ordered the below bling for the gown.

Another sewing moment from a wonderful customer

She was married two years ago but recently sent me some pictures to share. Such a pretty bride and handsome groom. I love the playfulness of the first photo.

Another Polka Dot Dress

I just love making this dress. Polka dots are such fun but hard to find, so I can only offer this dress when the fabric is available. I purchased a variety of different dots this year. I like the small dots the best. Dress is a mess right now, uneven skirt, too long of a skirt and I still have to add the sleeves. It is great start for the day though!

One completed lace dress

As always the picture does not do the dress justice.
Dress has hidden pockets and built in peek a boo tulle. Ruched detail in waist. Very feminine. Partially closed with zipper and buttons. I used embroidery thread for the button holes.

My new pattern Simplicity 3907

It is so darn cute!

Progress on blue lace dress

I'm almost done but at a point where I won't be posting so my customer can be the first to see the dress complete. Here is the bodice with sleeves. The skirt is attached and the zipper is put in. I only had to do that once if you can believe it! The details of the skirt is so cute. I sure hope she is happy with it. The back will have a peek a boo with a single button closure from the satin up.

Can't leave out Murphy SEW Cute

The picture isn't as cute as Connor but he is! This is Murphy Connor's brother. They were named after the movie "The Boondock Saints".

The machine is not on so there is no danger to the kitties. It is going to be a battle keeping them away.

Sometimes it is hard to sew.

 I recently got two kittens. I don't take good photos but these two turned out really cute. This is Connor and he has decided he wants to hang out by my sewing machine which is a huge NO.
He's thinking is she really going to kick me out of here?
