The Navy Blue One
I finished this in two days. It really wasn’t that hard. I mean I still have to make it shorter but the bulk of the work is done. My cutting hand was so sore, it felt like the muscles in my hand were cut shorter by at least half a metre.
With this dress I made a skirt to gently fit over the pretty blue dress I showed in my first post.. I had to improvise and get creative. I had so little time for such a big job!
The result is that she loves it and can’t wait to wear it. Her approval made me so so happy and humbled.
Let’s Choose a Color!
Nika is older so it’s a little harder. Her favorite color is mint green so we decided that would be her dress color. Again I searched high and low for a top and only found a dress from Truworths which was pink and silver. She can’t stand pink. So, I decided that I would use only the silver part. Sounds confusing I know. Just wait and see.
I have to finish the mint dress! My mommy is back from George and now she can help as well. She’s coming early tomorrow (Friday) morning. Yay for moms!
Shoes And Accessories
They both have shoes and hair accessories. They are going to look like princesses, but don’t tell Nika I said so. She won’t like that. Eight going on thirteen attitude.
They can’t wait! I can’t wait. One more day to go and I’ll see the girls in their gorgeous dresses that have caused me endless trips to the fabric store and meters and meters of fabric.
It was worth it and I’m not even done yet.
My kids and I have made it to the end of the week in one piece. It's a miracle, but we made it. All glory goes to God.
Be sure to follow my social media pages as I’ll reveal the dresses on Saturday once they are ready to go.
Let me get back to stitching.
