|The summer went by in a jiffy and without a computer I've been unable to post about all the wonderful things I've been sewing on. Ok maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I HAVE been sewing, promise.|
I've been working on 3 things; the pondicherry jacket (which I wore to the Bokskogen event, but it still needs a few more eyelets before I'm all done with it), the flemish (who's underdress I wore at Bokskogen and again at the Medieval Week at Visby and who's overdress I'm almost done with), and most importantly a wedding dress! My sister in law asked me if I'd make her wedding dress and although I know that family make the worst clients, I just couldn't refuse!
She wanted a very simple white silk dress with black details, very much like what I had planned to sew for my own wedding, but didn't have the nerves to sew.
I've made her a muslin in a pretty retro floral patterned fabric (seen to the right on my dummy set to the wrong size) which she'll be able to wear as a summer dress, and before my vacation I cut and sewed most of the lining. This weekend I'll start the silk and hopefully I'll have some pictures of the real deal for you soon!
