At Last

At last my commission is finished an Elizabethan Bridal Dress, I made the pattern myself and the brides choice was to have it in 100% pure silk, plain bottom and embroidered top with just a hint of gold on edges, the dress its self is fully boned to keep the lovely neckline in place as it just sits of the shoulders, fully lined in silk with under slip in stiff net.

Do hope you enjoyed this viewing


Now on to some lighter things which give me so much pleasure, quite the opposite to the above and make my hands a bit dirty so I have to leave sewing alone for a while when I am restoring my machines. At long last my latest 221 k singer (American version) sewing machine arrived, I was so excited opening the box and even more surprised to see it was in better condition than what I expected.I will be posting pictures of the finished restoration in the next few days, have shown a few pictures of the uncleaned version below
