More of #105

This is the best outside shot I could get. The camera wanted to focus on the trees. I even tried the manual focusing options but they didn't seem to work. Oh well. Notice the change in footwear and the snow. Brrrrr. I finished the neckline and clipped all threads. Although, I do see some up by the collar that I must have missed.

I also noticed when I sat down at the computer that this will be a scary dress to wear to school. I'll have to attach a couple of safety pins to the inside so I don't have any wardrobe malfunctions a la Mrs. Jackson.

Wow! You are stylin' in this adorable dress, Dawn! I'm so glad you had the opportunity to make this! It's going up on my list of things to do!

Myra said...

Cute one, instead of safety pins, can't you put some snaps on the inside of the plackets inbetween the buttons where needed? I think I saw that recommended in Sewing 911 or another book.

Turned out really cute!
On All Brands, I *think* I ordered from them a LONG time ago, and I'm pretty sure it was embroidery-related software. At any rate, I've been aware of them for a long time, so that's a good sign, and they also sponser a sewing forum called "SewForum" (here's the URL:
http://www.sewforum.com/) that I've been a member of for years. Members also post free embroidery designs, and post pictues of their creations. Kind of like PR, with very little of effort involved with posting a sewing project. There's also a wide range of sewing levels on it. I'm pretty sure it's where I found PR.

Oh, and if you want to be able to see any pictures, or download any embroidery, or see them for that matter, you have to register. And I forgot to mention that they also have discussions on various subjects, and there are a LOT of members that do embroidery, and are very knowledgeable, and more than willing to help, and give advice. As a matter of fact, I would suggest joining, and posting your embroidery question(s) there. Machine or otherwise.

That dress has some nice lines. Looks great on you.

I am a teacher, too. Isn't it funny how we have to think about how our outfit will work there? I wore a dress to school without sitting down in it, and, thankfully, I was giving tests that day, so I could put my coat over my lap and claim I was cold :)

Gorgeous dress! Fabulous shoes! You look amazing.

Linda said...

Great dress. I am curious about the type of fabric it is.

Dana said...

You don't eve look cold! The dress looks great. Maybe you could just sit down when the students aren't around!

I nominated you for the Sisterhood Award.

Such a chic dress! Must have been cold standing in the snow for the shot. I wouldn't be so brave.
