There are 9 days until The Wedding. The bride, groom and their little boy arrive from New Zealand in 3 days.
The last two weeks of dressmaking felt fraught….expensive lace has been tackled. We problem solved, found another problem, then problem solved again. And this happened about 4 times.
And then it kind of all came together. Cutting expensive lace was fine. Playing with lace trim was fun! Sewing lace was actually alright!
I decided to take a break from hand sewing some lace this morning, in favour of pinning the hem. We got off to a good start…
With so many almost-finished pieces, I was able to create a complete mock up of the dress by pinning it all to my Kate-sized dummy. We did this on FaceTime, and to say she was pleased was a bit of an understatement. Look at her geeky little face!
I’m more annoyed that she’s expecting me to put hanging loops in!!
