Prom 2010

Change of plans on the prom dress. Uh, dress-es. JB couldn't really find one that fit her nicely, so she asked me to make hers.

Here's the idea for Barbie:

And here's the fabric. Can you say GOR-GEOUS????

I found this at a little shop where I took my serger to be serviced. It was a bit pricey, but at only 3 yards, definitely worth it.

And here's the idea for JB:

We're doing the view in the center.

And the fabric. Can you say GOR-GEOUS again?

Needless to say, I have my work cut out for me. I don't really have a pattern for Barbie's dress, so I'll be morphing a couple together to really get the look of the dress I'm copying.

I'm making muslins of both dresses first, in order to get the fit right. Better to have it right the first time than have to fuss with the real dress fabric .

And I should be in there right now -- gotta go!
