In addition I'm also doing a lot of work for the maternity wear client - she actually had a fashion show today that I needed to do a rush order for:
|Black matte satin lining with black lace overlay|
|Close-up of the neckline, which kept wanting to curl to the outside|
so bad I had to topstitch it into place - and that was AFTER
understitching the lining to the seam allowance.
|Another invisible zipper that isn't quite as invisible....|
|My favorite part - the scalloped hem of the lace overlay - I hemmed|
the lining short enough so that the scallop really showed up.
|If I'd had more time, I would have replaced this|
with a black one. It was all the client had on hand.
At least you can't see the whole zipper....
Sorry they are blurry - I was shooting on the run out to deliver the dress.
Needed to coordinate these flowers for a marriage validation ceremony tomorrow with a wedding that will be happening afterwards. The coordinator asked if I could do hot pink to match the attendants at that wedding. Hot pink is expensive. I sure hope that bride & groom will be making a donation to the church to say thank you for the free flowers.....
I couldn't be there for the fashion show today, though - because I was up at church, doing this again:
The roses are just luscious, some of them are double:
|DOUBLE! So full!|
|It was pretty amazing to be able to find matching|
gladiolas in the same hot pink!
Now, on to cutting out more dresses (three due this week, including one in custom fabric) - but only after I go lay down for awhile. Doing these large arrangements always takes such a toll on my back. Wish we could find one more florist for the church. This weekend is the Ministry Fair - hopefully we will get lucky and find someone who has the experience who can handle large floral arrangements like this. So I won't have to.
