Making Progress

It took me a long time to cut out the two little bridesmaid's dresses. They are lined and have an extra layer of spotty tulle on the top of the skirt. All in all it felt like I had cut out six dresses!
Here's Maddie trying on the bodice for me, it's a good fit and little sleeves are so cute. (that skirt in the photo is not the skirt of the bridesmaid dress lol) And then we went into model mode, Maddie is such a cheeky little darling, great fun!
I have now sewn the skirt to the bodice, it took ages to gather it all up so tightly, I was in fear of the gathering threads breaking! Just got to do the lining and tulle underskirt tomorrow and then I can start on Millie's! It was so lovely to have these gorgeous girls keep popping in to watch me sew and to have a little chat.....magic!
Thank you all for the lovely comments on the photo of Millie :^)

Hi Marianne..... if you understand then you're on the way to understanding the grandma!
I'll pass your comments on to M-UK. she's without I-net access until the weekend - and I'm in Germany until Friday. How complicated life is sometimes!

Good luck with the dresses. I absolutely love dressmaking, especially if it's something fancy and if I have enough time to fiddle with it.
