Planned is the operative word here. In reality, I'm only down 10 lbs. Not enough, but it's too late now to lament the fact.
I just talked with Cidell, and in the conversation finally counted days til I leave - 15.
Sewing I need to have done before I go:
- Ashlee's velvet jacket for over the wedding gown - muslin made, jacket construction will be easy
- My dress
- My coat/wrap/something
- hopefully this burgundy wool Guy Laroche jacket I've been working on
- a pair of pants to go with the burgundy jacket.
I will be blogging progress. It's the accountability, you know?
The dress decision is made, the fabric acquired, and approval from the bride and MOB obtained.
Evadress Pattern 4057
I'll post pics of my fabrics this weekend. Right now they're tightly wound on tubes.
I'm also planning on making a wrap/coat of some type from some silk velvet I had on hand, that happens to exactly match the silks for my dress.
I just picked up the Folkwear patterns for the cocoon coats, but still also have these two patterns in mind. I need to make a decision before the weekend is over.
EvaDress pattern 1965
Decades of Style Parisienne coat
The Poiret Cocoon that's just been re-issued
And, just looking at it now, I'm realizing that the narrow hem of this cocoon coat and the A-line flared hem of the dress are totally incompatible.
The sunrise Cocoon from Folkware -
View B is waist length, so this might still be an option.
