Catching up and something fancy

March 6, 2013

It’s been a while… but I’m still sewing, just not that often since I went back to grad school in the fall. Since September I have completed two dresses – one jersey dress modeled after a store-bought dress that I love that’s going to take some more work to get the pattern right, and one ball gown.

Every year, a Toronto reserve unit hosts a ball as a fundraiser for a veteran’s group. Shopping under any circumstances is not that much fun, so I decided to make my dress. I’ll do a post about the process of making it, but here’s a photo from that night.

(I spent almost two hours before we left ironing the dress, but just sitting in the car on the way down to the venue got it all wrinkly again. Alas!)
