The world is still in a state of change and the rules to keep us safe keep changing but this week I have had my first bridesmaids fittings. I've donned a face shield and each customer has to wear a face mask to keep us all safe but it works and I've some posh frocks to share with you today....
This is what my rail looks like. I have....
- Shortened 2 hems on two of the bridesmaids dresses
- Lifted another of them at the shoulders and stitched it up a little on the front
- Shortened the hem on an evening dress and
- Steamed 4 of the bridesmaids dresses.
Sounds easy? Well the two bridesmaids dresses I had to shorten were colours I didn't have thread to match so my darling hubby had to pop to our local fabric shop to fetch me matching threads. Then when I came to steam the dresses my old steamer died....it really owes me nothing but you don't expect these things to die just as you need to steam 4 dresses [and the Wedding is on Sunday so I didn't have a lot of time!]. Of course my darling hubby came to the rescue again and ordered me a new one to pick up at our local Argos and then popped to fetch it for me....pleased don't imagine me sitting waiting cos I had plenty to keep me busy!!
I know many of you like to see my posh frocks so here's a closer look while they are airing after being steamed. They are for 5 beautiful teenage bridesmaids. Both the bride and groom have lost their parteners so they are joining two families of 7 children between them and I really couldn't be happier for them all....I feel very blessed to have played my part in making their day perfect.
Finally this is my desk today. I'm putting together the last of the masks that have already been cut out ready. I'm selling them off in grab bags [feel free to pop over to my Facebook page if you'd like to grab yourselves a bargain] and imagine when they are gone that will be the last I make ....but who knows?
I'm always happy to take orders but, now I am getting a few fittings, it will be nice to clear my desks of mask making and do something else for a change.
