I started Faith's First Holy Communion dress over the weekend.
First I botched cutting the chiffon. Have you ever cut chiffon? It's like cutting water. I had to buy more. But then I placed it on a cotton tablecloth to keep it from moving and that went well.
Then I started on the ties, the first step. It took me and hour. I had to make those wee tiny hems all the way around the long kind of ties you make in a bow at the back of a dress. Have you ever made those kinds of wee tiny hems on chiffon? Oy vey. It took me an hour. I thought I was in waaaaay over my head.
But, then I made the bodice, sans sleeves. I finished it and I tried it on her, because I was afraid she would be swimming in it. But, even without the zipper, it looks pretty good.
It's still early, however. And I have miles of chiffon to hem. The sleeves have two layers of chiffon, as does the skirt. And underneath the chiffon is miles of crepe. Oy vey. What did I get myself into?
The veil is finished and I took pictures, but someone absconded with the camera cable, which is not a very nice thing to do. So, I'm in limbo. Can't move forward.
SO, I suppose I'll go make lesson plans.
Have a day. It's up to you what kind it is.
