I haven't done much sewing the last few days. But, I will be. Less than a month till all the lycra needs to be sewn up. A bit more to order as well.
I am looking forward to Friday and Saturday. 2 days of classes with Gail Doane. That will be a lot of fun. Need to unpack and reorganize my sewing stuff for that. Some stuff is still in boxes from the trip to Michigan this weekend. Glad I brought it. Had to alter some pants, and one of the girls competition dresses. I would say that most of the girls enjoyed the trip, and the teams skated well, but they didn't place as well as they had hoped.
I didn't get to smock on Mini Axelgirls dress this weekend. Just didn't have the time to do it. But will start making the time.
Since I don't have anything new to show, I will show some pictures from the Gateway Competition last November. I made these 3 dresses. 2 were new for this competition, the one with the ribbon was made about a year ago. I just received the cd this weekend, because I was late in ordering it. I will say, I think Kevin Devine Photography ( www.kevindevinephotography.com ) always does an excellent job. I have over 200 pictures to pick from for 4 programs all on CD, so I can print and edit the ones I want. I haven't looked at the synchro one yet. Ignore the scary eye makeup in some of the pictures with the periwinkle dress. A friend helped axelgirl with her makeup, and was a tad bit heavy handed. I will say, the periwinkle dress is my favorite so far that I have made. I am thinking about adding stones to the straps. Hopefully, this dress will fit for a long time. I think the aqua may need a few more stones as well. Need to see what the budget says about the stones though.
Periwinkle dress, she used this for her freeskate and compulsories
Front of dress. I need to count and see how many crystals are there. I'm thinking I did close to 300
That's about it for now. Will hope to post new sewing by the end of the week.
