Yuck. Altered 2 more of the skating dresses, but won't be able to fit them until Sunday. I'm hoping for a good fit. Noticed that since the skirts were chiffon, they were pulling out at the waist on some of the dresses. This was true of the the two dresses I received tonight to cut into parts.
Also started on the male skaters shirt. All I need to do on it is the cuffs, and it is done. Probably a 15 minute job, so will hopefully do that tonight or early tomorrow. That will just leave 2 dresses left. I have a feeling all 7 will need to be shortened with a rolled hem on the serger. Once we figure the length it should be easy, but I need the skaters for that. I will bring my machines with me Sunday to practice. Also realized I needed to put name labels in the dresses. I think that can be done Sunday as well.
After that, I hope to pleat up and tie off a pink pima broadcloth basic square yoke for my favorite pink princess. Need to decide on smocking colors and a smocking design. If she likes it when done, I have another one in mind using the Moda Pixie Dust Fabric, and smocking it with some beads, like Pixie Dust. She is skating to a song with Axel Girl called Pixie Dust, and I think it would be fun to do. Now the real question is, geometric or picture smocking........... I need to decide so I know which binder of plates to look through. One of my goals this year is to start taking more handwork with me when I go places. So much wasted time. I also need to do a quick pickup of the area. Things get out of place too quickly.
