and another thing: I was compiling a little list of possible bridesmaid's dress patterns and getting very excited about it… my brother's getting married in march next year… yes it's a little ways away, but i wanted to make a muslin and get it perfect… well his fiance (who i like a lot) had given us free reign: "any green dress." so i was super pumped because i was going to make my own and it was going to be fabulous. welllll. now we have new instructions that it needs to be a green dress from dessy/alfred sung. 2 girls in ivy green and 2 girls in pine green. so i'll be buying my dress instead of making something. i was a bit bummed. my husband says i can still make a dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner, another dress for the picnic and another for the brunch. (when did weddings get so involved with so many events!!) fine. i'll make a fabulous rehearsal dinner dress. but i'm not as excited about it. ah well.
i always like to include photos, so here are some from 2 & 1/2 weeks ago. i know, i'm behind!! i took a little class where we made simple zippered bags. not super advanced, but any excuse to meet up with other girls with a shared love of sewing.
