Updates and such...

My part of the wedding dress is done and it has been handed off to greater skilled hands then mine to complete the finishing touches. I took no pictures of the final fitting, but rest assured, it is lovely. I'll post plenty of pics of the wedding.

I also have had a bit of a derailing of my great plans for sewing this month. Dan and Kali have asked if Logan and Myra would be ring bearer and flower girl. How fun! So I have a few things to make to get ready for that!! The groomsmen are wearing black suits and deep red ties. I am about halfway finished with Logan's linen Otto pants,
so if that pattern works well, I will pick up some black suiting and make them again. I can't see Logan putting up with a suit coat, so I'm not sure I'll do that, and I may just purchase the white shirt and tie - time constraints being what they are.
For Myra I have some satin and organza left over from Kali's gown. I think that I shall use Simplicity 5695, view F.
I won't do the little flowers on the bodice and I'll add a bow at the back waistline to mimic Kali's. I'm on the fence about shaping the overskirt like Kali's. I'm not sure it would look quite right gathered. It is a quick sew and I am confident that I can get it done before the wedding in 2 weeks. I'll probably make this before Logan's black slacks though. If worse comes to worse, I can always buy black pants!
