My fiance proposed at 12:12 on 12/12/12. We’re thinking 11/12/13 at 14:15 would be good time to get married. 09:10 is an option but I’d be up early getting my hair and make up done. After looking online at wedding dresses I am thinking about sewing my own. I really need to make a few items first to see if I am really up to the challenge.
My friend Anita is getting married later this month. I was planning to wear my pale pink lace dress but then I was told I need my shoulders covered in the Synagogue. I could knit a shawl but decide I would make a new dress. I am not in the bridal party but I am a civil witness so will be slightly on display. I recently went dress pattern shopping with my friend Rebecca. Patterns were half price so I bought these five.
I am making B5710 in the shorter length for Anita’s wedding.
I consulted the bride and her request was no black, white or purple so I decided to make green. The darker green is the dress, the green with gold trim will be a feature hiding behind the cowl neck and the pale green the lining. Throw in a $10 voucher from Spotlight and the fabric cost me $26.36. I did buy a little more than I need but always good to have extra. I still need to buy the invisible zip and maybe the shoulder pads the pattern recommends.
So far I have started cutting out the paper pattern. I cut all sizes then fold the pattern to my size. Not the best idea but it works for me. I need to measure myself and get out my dressmaking dummy.
