    My quilting has been put on hold! :-o I have been doing WEDDING sewing - burlap table runners, decorations, signature blocks, instead of a guest book and flower girl dress for DGD. DD is getting married (2nd) at the end of this month. First I made a 'sample' dress, from the pattern. Then altered it for the flower girl dress

    Very nice! I'm helping with a wedding too. My newphew's on the 30th. The bride was given a wedding dress. I'm doing the alterations for her. Thank goodness all it needs is to be shortened. Of course, that means about 6 layers need to be shortened lol.

    Thank you!

    It has been MANY years since I followed a clothes pattern. OMG 5/8" seams are so big! I'll have to readjust back to my nice and small 1/4" quilt seams ;)

    So pretty. I sew too, mainly Halloween costumes for the grandchildren and recently granddaughter wanted a "home made pink nightgown" which I made her.

    And being a mom, you probably can!! My daughters senior year, I made two prom dresses plus a bridesmaid dress in two weeks. Of course, they weren't really fancy fancy patterns, just simple and pretty. My kids always thought I could sew or mend anything in a matter of minutes, let alone hours. My oldest son bought me a figurine that is an old grandma at her sewing machine, patching a little boys pants while he still has them on. He said when he saw it, he thought of me and him.LOL
