Friday, Heather and I finalized shopping for her dress fabric. Although everyone at the fabric store had been super helpful, we were fortunate enough to have someone with tons of knowledge assist us.
This being said, it’s a good thing! I would never have been able to figure the yardage correctly.
The gorgeous embellished lace that we were waiting to order more of…….not to be had. (Of course.)
We only had two yards. Heather came up with the idea of using it on the back of the dress as a train of sorts. PERFECT!
We just couldn’t find another lace this beautiful. It had just the perfect amount of bling, yet the pearls gave it a kind of soft elegance.
The dress itself is a pale pale pink. It took some looking, but we were finally able to find the perfect color that Heather wanted. The lace trim that you see will finish the bottom of the lace train.
Here’s the ivory chiffon that will lay over the dress skirt. Sounds like a good plan. Now let’s just hope that Mom here can pull it off!
So…..pale pink dress, chiffon overlay on skirt, beaded train on back trimmed out on bottom with scalloped lace. Yep, sure sounds simple!
Actually, I am both terrified and excited. I think it’s going to be gorgeous. Yep, I’m absolutely SURE I can do this. I really do think the excitement of seeing the finished dress is what will spur me toward victory!
Here’s a pic. of the sweet little flower girl dress. Isn’t it just precious? I actually found this at T.J. Maxx well before Easter. It just looked like the perfect Spring afternoon. I especially love the way that little bit of tulle petticoat peeks out from underneath. If it’s a cool evening, a little white cardigan sweater would look cute over it too.
So…..we’re getting there. I just need to work up the courage to cut into that fabric!
Thought I would also take a minute to show you the two cute little stools that I finished over the weekend.
Heather painted them, I upholstered.
Love that turquoise color and cute gold detailing.
I think either one of these would be cute as either a vanity stool or as extra little seating tucked under a sofa table maybe.
You can find them both at the Rink. $68.00 each.
