Wow there was a lot to catch up from that i missed this weekend! you ladies have been busy!!!!
I am happy to report that alterations on my dress are DONE and it's READY TO GO! Unfortunately, no pics for you YET ... but I'll get some this week. My dress is 2 pieces, so I was only wearing the skirt on the weekend as that's the only part that needed the alteration. The skirt has a lot of pickups in it so she cut and hemmed the new length saving a little extra in the front. So all we did was have me put it on and walk. Then to make the length perfect in the front, she just sewed a few more pickups! Easy peasy! She took a TON of fabric off of it too so I think I have more than enough left to make a cocktail dress. AND, the skirt is SO MUCH LIGHTER now!!! phew!!
I'll be bringing the dress to my parents' house some time this week and I'll try it ALL on there for my mom (she couldn't come this weekend) and get her to snap some pics! I'm really happy with it though!
