A new dress for Mitzie!

18 Mar

It has been a good long while, but dressmaking is finally happening here. We have been busy with practice, competition and with a new, wonderful grandbaby. Our first:-)

This dress has been progressing at a glacial pace, but now looks like a dress, at least. We are working on the premise that instead of standing out from my wonderfully tall partner, if I blend in a bit more it will look like we “match.” It was inspired by watching a similarly height challenged couple in which the lady wore black.

“That will never work!” I thought, but as I watched, I realized that it really did work, partly because the usual colour contrast of her bright colours against his black suit wasn’t there, but also because they looked like a pair that belonged together.

So rather than go straight to black, this one is a deep burgundy with black accents.  Stoning to be discussed shortly!

    A new direction from your previous dresses, and very lovely. Eagerly waiting to see the dress stoned and finished.
