Never want to hand sew again!
Hey you guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. I was gone last week, but now that I’m back this poor, neglected blog will receive a little TLC.
IT’S FINALLY DONE!!! Ugh I never want to hand sew, hand bead, hand, anything again!! I started this gown around 3 weeks ago. I probably could have finished it sooner but I was procrastinating on it a lot…like I said, hand sewing…shivers. I used lace for the panels and then beaded around the edges. For the bodice I cut off some beaded appliqué from this dress I got at Goodwill. Then I put them in a design that I liked and hand sewed all of them together. I used hooks in the back so you can get in and out of it. I’m really excited with the way it turned out, but I’ve decided that my next project will be strictly sewing machine only! ; )
So I found something out…Woods + lace gown + mosquitoes + cat staring at you like your food + running back and forth between tripod and poses = not the best idea. Haha. The photos didn’t really turn out how I wanted, but oh well …I think I’ll see if I can find someone who can model for me next time. That would be so much easier! Have a great day.
