I can’t hardly believe it’s my birthday tomorrow. It’s really quite an exciting one for me. I’ll be 25, which I am incredibly excited about. I know how hard I am going to be working this next year to accomplish my dreams and goals. Actually, now that I think about it, I’d love to do a list of 25 things I want to do while I am 25. Stay tuned for that!
Today, as you can probably tell from the title, I wanted to share a sneak peek of my birthday dress I am making. Yes, I have left it until woefully late. But as I am working from home today, I am fairly certain I shall have it done in time to don tomorrow morning!
I am making the Deer and Doe Sureau dress. I made a quick wearable muslin, which I will write a separate post about, and after a quick FBA, I’m set and good to go! I used this tutorial for the FBA and it is fantastic! I’ll get into the remaining nitty gritty sewing details later.
I am using a stunning Liberty of London cotton lawn and it is everything I’ve dreamed of! I have wanted to get my hands on this fabric “brand?” (I’m not sure exactly what to call it) for absolutely ages so needless to say I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to review some through Minerva. It is scrummy and soft and will be the most perfect dress!
And now I must bid you adieu for today. I’ve other blog posts to write, birthday dress to finish, Christmas presents to work on, and a vlog to film and edit. It’s a busy and, hopefully, productive day!
