I'm excited to show you my finishes this week!
This lovely young lady from my church asked me to make her a homecoming dress.
We found a pattern on Burda and it was a great fit :)
I decided to make a trial dress, just in case. I used up the rest of this black and white fabric I had. I did have to do a section of plain black on the back.
And here is the final product in the colors and fabrics she requested! I found an invisible zipper foot in with one of my more recently acquired sewing machines and put it to work for this one. There is also boning which was a new skill for me. I actually pulled it out of my first prom dress to use :)
She looks lovely!!
I also finished up a quilting finish.
A friend and classmate asked me to do the quilting on this one for her. It is so cute and it just begged to have flowers quilted in, so I got brave.
I've only free-motion quilted one other quilt.
I'm glad I went with that for this one. Normally I have to stick to the straight lines provided by the quilt top itself.
Woohoo, for stepping outside my comfort zone. I love how it turned out!
She wanted something soft and fuzzy for the back since it is a baby quilt. I purchased a minkie like pink polka dot that quilted up just fine.
