Thank You to Everyone for the Beautiful Birthday Wishes.
My weekend was absolutely awesome, in that my family celebrated it for 4 days!!! Before I could get out of my PJs, I could hear them pulling into the driveway, singing Happy Birthday, loaded with gifts, food and spirits. I was like ohhh no they didn't and the partying started as early as 9:00am.. at some point I was reminded that I still had on my PJs... lol. Yes 4 days of just eating, drinking & having fun. Can I say Citroma was my friend at the end....lol.
Of course, I was against it, but they said this year they would not let me hide in my room...lol. However, I did sneak away for an hour or so each day and worked on something... They thought I was cat napping after my tango with a few drinks....haha!
I was able to start working on a dress for my dd who will be attending an all white function on Saturday. She mentioned that she couldn't find a dress, so here I go thinking I'm a Sewing Diva and said I could make one. Briefly, during the B-Day celebration we took a quick ride to the fabric store to pick out pattern & fabric.
She selected Simplicity 2884. It consists of 2 versions of a Halter dress, and I'm working the shorter version, which has a button neck band. While at the fabric store I removed the instruction sheet and noticed that it required boning, and tried to talk dd into selecting something else, but she was persistent and I figured I could skip it. Ok, can I say I don't know what the heck I'm doing, but definitely swinging it.... lol. Here is the underside.
I need to shorten it considerably, finish the bodice straps, neck band, buttons and tweak the zipper. I think I have enough for a wrap, but I'll see.
If you hear a throat wrenching scream its my dd...lol.
