I Love Sewing

Hi there Bloglanders

Yes! I know I didn't get to blogging for the past two days but I've been very busy. Normally I don't show my sewing projects but as this blog is mine and sewing is one of my biggest passions I decided to change all that.

For the past two weeks I've been making a wedding dress, bridesmaid's dresses, a dress for the maid of honour and an outfit for the mother of the groom.  That's a lot don't you think???  Well, it is a lot. For each bridesmaid's dress I used 12 meters of tulle and I made five of them.  I actually had to buy rolls of tulle as my local fabric store was not prepared to measure it out by hand - the rolls get measured on a machine.

I can show you one of the bridesmaid's dresses as I don't think the bride would be impressed with me if her wedding dress floats around blogland prior to her walking down the isle. Her it is:

The bride is still thinking about adding a red sash to the middle but I just love the simplicity of it as it is. Believe me the little girls look like powder puffs in these.  They will be barefoot with ribbons and bells around their ankles and posies of red flowers for their hands.  Little white Jasmine flowers will be braided into their long, curly hair. I can't wait to see the final result.

I'm sure the bride will forward some pictures for me to put on my Blog. After the wedding  I'll show pictures of the other dresses.  So, I've been a busy little bee.

Not my normal sort of post but thanks for visiting and sharing in my crafting fun. 

Have a Wacky Wednesday and please come back to play on Play as U Go.
