Skating dress for Mini-Axelgirl

Mini Axelgirl is competing in her first USFS competition at the end of the month.  She needed a new routine for that which means a new skating dress as well.

Coach sent her mom some ideas of dresses that she liked on line, then I met with her mom to figure out what needed to be done.  Below is the dress we came up with, without stones.  Her mom will do the crystals and then I will get another picture back.  I will probably shirr up the side of the skirt, but need to see it on her first before I decide for sure.



I have also finished the photo albums but will wait to share pictures, just in case anyone reads this.  Another mom is helping to supply the photos so that is nice.

My next top items are:
  1. Baby gift (photo album, and bib burprag set) for one of Axelgirl's coaches
  2. Photo album for my cousin who just found out she will be a grandma for the first time
  3. Construct a BSY that is already smocked.  This will be for my nieces birthday
  4. Pinafore for a doll dress that is already finished
  5. Nightgown for me
And as always, I have Wee Care that I can be working on

Not much to report

I did finish the tissue covers, but forgot to take a picture before I sent them on.  I will try and get a picture of Axelgirl's when she brings it home this weekend.

I have also decided on what to do for the WGI Worlds goody bag item for 4/2.  I am making photo album covers based on these, to go along with their theme.  In the hoop photo album cover  They will be gray with the oval out of the lavender I have been using, and the name of their show "Unrequited" embroidered in the oval.  Another mom is going to help out with the pictures.  I am about 75% done, this time I am making 17 so that the coaches get one for a keepsake as well.  All I need to do is finish turning them right side out and press.  I'm really liking these for small personalized gifts and have a few others planned.  Spring Break starts Thursday (yeah!), so hopefully I will get some sewing time in.

My next top items are:

  1. Photo Albums for WGI Worlds goody bag
  2. Competition dress for Mini Axel girl
  3. Baby gift (photo album, and bib/burprag set) for Axelgirls coach
  4. Photo album for my cousin who just found out she will be a grandma for the first time
  5. Construct a BSY that is already smocked.  This will be for my niece's birthday
  6. Pinafore for a doll dress that is already finished
