Well...

I got some pieces to Wildchild's Christmas dress cut out. I had to lengthen the bodice and shorten the sleeves. I put off cutting out the skirt pieces, as I think they'll be a pain to cut out. She wants a long skirt, otherwise "it's not a Christmas dress." So I'll be cutting out around 30" long pieces, and fairly wide, since they're going to be gathered.

I'm not looking forward to cutting out the pieces of my test dress. I want a nice dress, though, so I have to make myself do it. If I tell you guys that I'll try to do it tomorrow, maybe that will motivate me. :)

The Scientist is enjoying her horseback riding lessons.

did they end up honoring your gift certificate? It looks like the same barn...forgot the name...Glad she finally got on a horse!

Actually it's a barn very near where we live. The people who owned the other place are refusing to refund us and my sister-in-law is considering talking to a lawyer. Just dissolving a business does not get said business out of its financial obligations.

Good luck with cutting the pieces! I have to make a muslin this weekend, myself. (Thanks for the test ideas a few months back!) But I'll be making a couple of maternity tops and a skirt and pants...

By the way, the Paris shirt looks super cute!

so.... how's the sewing going??
also just a wee heads-up that you didn't use your special pseudonym for the owner of the dress, not sure if you meant to or not.
LIGHT THAT CANDLE, PUT ON THAT CHRISTMAS MUSIC, SEW THAT DRESS!! x

Liz, looking forward to seeing the maternity clothes!
