Dress Chronicles: Episode 6

June 12, 2012 Leave a comment

With the lining stitched in, all that’s left are the finishing touches – mostly the roses.  I’ll admit to being a bit sloppy when sewing and wrapping them, so they’re a little inconsistent.  I’m lucky enough to have a mother-in-law who also sews, and she has volunteered to make the rest of them.  Once all 36 are done, I’ll sort them into three groups of the most similar ones, and then sew them on.

12 Pink Fabric Roses

I’m not entirely happy with all the roses – I may redo a couple of them

In the meantime, they’ve been pinned on, and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

Roses look alright on the dress though

Still to go:

  • Bringing in the side seams to fit
  • Shortening – may do this with just the shoulder straps, or I might go all-out, remove the skirt, shorten it from the waist end, take it in properly, and reattach it all
  • Tidying up loose ends
  • Sewing on the roses
  • Dresses 2 and 3
