This week, I cannot show you the progress on my crazy quilting class project, because there wasn't any! I have spent the week altering my granddaughter's wedding dress! She bought a pricey gown that was a little too tight in the bodice, and she wanted the train to bustle. It was going to cost her "an arm and a leg" to use her words, to have it altered where she bought it, so she asked grandma! It is my wedding gift to her.
I had to remove the zipper (well, actually I cut it down keeping the part below the waist.) I added a ribbon lace up closure. Thought you might like a sneak peek:
The wedding is today, so I will post a few pics next week of her in the gown! See you next week!
Wow - you're brave to take on that project! I love sewing, but alterations are so difficult for me. I have to admit I'd like to have the "tight in the bodice" problem, though...I can't even wear most strapless dresses because I don't have anything to hold them up with!
What a beautiful dress and a great gift from grandma! I bet she'll look wonderful in it!
What a treasure for her - and for you!
I LOVE the lace-up back! Beautifully-crafted, Grandma!
