The Making of Autumn's Deb Dress
Thankfully I was able to start this process early.
After looking on line for a dress pre-made or pre-loved we could not find anything we found appropriate so I headed down the path of making this dress.
Now I have always tried to do what I could to create and sew for our family BUT I am the first to admit that sewing clothes is not my forte or my love. I find it stressful as I nearly always have too much to achieve in a short period of time and almost always technical difficulties.
in this post) in plenty of time.
Our dear friend Bernadette came over to help in any way she could with the laying out of the fabric and holding our precious Trahaearn.
I worked in small pieces of time during the day with much help from the children in attending other tasks and doing lots of sewing while burning the midnight oil.
Although the sewing was not difficult I am not a great sewer and reading a pattern is almost like reading alien writing. I have to take my time to visualise the steps and then implement them.
I was however so pleased with my progress and even put a zipper in for the first time EVER.
This is it without the sash, which incidentally covers about half of those buttons!!!
Now all we had to do was get some shoes.......another interesting day.
As tonight is the night for the long looked for event....THE Debutante Ball I am sure I will sharing some photos very soon of not only Autumn but the other Debs and their partners as well.
Wish us all luck and prayers for these special young people as they embark on a new adventure please.
Blessings to you and your homes,
