A dress in the making

I set aside this holiday for a project. 
A sewing project. 
My graduation dress, with fabric bought by the boy. 

It is so nearly done and I can't wait to share it in full. I decided that I would try and document the process using my big camera as it really needed a workout. I think it's fun to do a 'photo essay' once in a while. 


It's good to be back with my sewing machine.

The fabric looks lovely and will be a great contrast with your graduation gown. How can you be graduating? Didn't you just go to Uni??

Such pretty fabric. I think it's Simplicity 2444, judging by those darts on the bodice. It's going to be gorgeous.
