I suffer the last minute disease, and since last weekend I made the first of 3 formals and this weekend I am plunging into this one for an event at the end of the month, I now know all the potential pitfalls that await me! Thanks so much for the details!

I LOVE this pattern and have been waiting for someone to review it. Unfortunately, it's a little beyond my current sewing skills. Great job though!

Stunning! Thanks for sharing the whole saga - definitely heartstopping thrills, much more exciting than Iron Man! The end result is simply beautiful... excellent job!

Wendlesue, I opened this blog by suggesting that you were crazy to try this, and I am just astounded at the prodigiously wonderful result. I can only conclude that it was the skipped showed that made all the difference! AND you went to the movies??? Are you trying to give the Continent a heart attack? This was like watching one of those reality shows where you're so afraid you've going to see something that will make you avert your eyes, but in the end we're applauding! WOW!

Bravo! The dress is fabulous; you did a wonderful job. This was such a fun review - I was in suspense to see how it turned out. It's just great, and I bet it looked terrific on DD.

Eek! I wish I had paid attention to your disclaimer paragraph! Good luck, can't wait to see the finished dress, bet you can't either!

Oooh! I can't wait to hear/read/see how this all turned out! Is she at the dance right now while you are slumped over your sewing machine? ;)

SO pretty! :o)

Should we make a fire in the fireplace, bring out the drinks and snacks, and have a nice chat while waiting for the finished gown?

OMG OMG...this is so exciting! I can't wait for the end. This dress is gorgeous, and you have the hardest part done...She will be beautiful.

It looks beautiful so far! I love the gathers down the front!

Been there, done that--should we start a support group?

A great idea of taking photos of a black garment in the sun - definitely shows the details alot better.

So far, the dress looks beautiful! Holding my breath...

Been there, done that -- bridesmaids drresses for DD#!'s wedding and then stayed up all night making my own dress--45 min. sleep in two days--I know what you are going through. We always say never again -- until the next time. The dress is going to be beautiful. Can't wait to see the final version.

I can't wait to read the rest. Mama-sewers everywhere are laughing because we've been in similar situations!

Did you ever know that you are my hero...Best of luck. Everyone knows procrastinators are the most efficient people on earth - can you imagine getting all this done without a deadline?
LoriU said... (2/21/09 1:12 AM) Reply
I love this story - I work best under deadlines, too! And your toile looks great - I would love to have somewhere to wear this dress - Good Luck!!

32 pieces in the bodice?! That's crazy. I can't wait to see how it comes out...
FurGal said... (2/20/09 1:13 PM) Reply
Oh really do it to yourself, don't you? lol I can't wait to see the finished product, the pattern is lovely. When my sister and I were little girls, Mom would wait until the Saturday night before Easter to begin sewing our Easter dresses. I was always terrified we would not have a pretty new dress for Easter, she always came through with beautiful dresses. I don't know how she did it!

Good luck on getting it finished and I, too, look forward to the finished product.

I can't wait to see the finished dress. You can do it! My mom always procrastinated too when she was making me things... even if I did tell her a month ahead of time she would wait until the last one or two days. She always managed to produce so I have faith in you:)
