This past week and a half I've been working on a big job-- not Versailles big, but big enough to keep me busy for a week and a half. Andrea, who has very cute ginger head girls, hired me to make flower girl's dresses for said girls for her sister in law's wedding. It's going to be a fancy-shmancy wedding, and I'd like to think she hired the best around for such a job. The wedding colors are red and gold-- perfect holiday colors-- and the Gingers were lucky enough to get actual SILK dresses since I had this fabric left-over from my unfinished senior project. A seven and three year old in silk? Are we talking about my future children here?
We had a fitting last Saturday, and luckily they fit like a dream. Gingers look great it gold.
The bodice is lined, but since the skirt had an overlay, I figured it would be too heavy with a lining as well. I hand stitched the entire lining to the bodice, which is very therapeutic and extremely non-distracting while watching a movie (or Gilmore Girl's season 6).
More pictures to come of the actual Gingers wearing the dresses. Last fitting on Saturday.
