It has being a year since my last post. What a year it has being! One I can’t wait to leave behind. Like many people, this economy has dragged me down and all my time was taken trying to keep up.

I have not made a single thing all this time, although I try to make something for myself to keep my mind away, but it did not happen [why is it so hard to make something for yourself when you are a guy?] Never the less, the greatest give to “man” is it time… this too should pass.

One of my cousins is getting married this month, and of course I’m making her dress…

I’m posting some pics of her last fitting and other of the dress before the fitting. Later I will post detail pics of the process.

Front photo of the bride trying the dress. The dress has a scooped neckline, dropped waistline with cap sleeves. The bodice of the dress is made of emprodery tull with sequens, beads and flowers

The lower part of the dress is made of Silk Satin Organza, with appliques of the bodice fabric on the top. Vertical ruffles in differnts lenghts all over the skirt

Back look of the dress in the mannequin

Front look of the dress
you could see on this pic that side seams had not being closed. The seams will be sewn after last fitting

The wedding is in two weeks, I'd post more pics after the wedding
