A new project landed in my lap yesterday.
My daughter and I were in one of the thrift shops in town looking for her holiday dress. When she saw this one she gasped and declared this dress her "faaaavorite" and hugged it. As luck would have it, it fit her perfectly, and the overall shape is cute. The velvet is bright red and the top is white with a little line of faux pearls at the neck. With a little tweaking it will be super sweet (I'm hoping anyway). I'll be working on this in the next few weeks and I'll be back to show you more later. A hint at what I'll be doing though, involves one of Nini's embroidery patterns (and btw, aren't her patterns adorable? You can have any one of them with your choice of donation on her site, so check it out).
Last year I re-fashioned her dress from a garage sale find and an antique lace collar. This too was velvet. The girl has a thing for velvet.
Now I'm thinking that I need to make her a black Elvis on velvet dress. I'll save that project for another day though. Thank ya, uh thank ya very much.
What's on your plate today?
