|Jess in her Dress|
I was actually quite nervous as I waited for Jess to try on her Prom Dress this morning. This is the first time I've been asked, or commissioned I guess, to make something, for someone, for a special occasion. Prom, no less.
When she came out of my studio to show me, I was horrified. For a long moment I couldn't figure out why the bodice seemed to fit so badly despite having tailored it so specifically to her figure... Then... phew! She had put it on back-to-front!!
Having put it on the right way round, and hemmed the skirt, she and I are both thrilled with the result. And now, as with all projects I've completely enjoyed making, I'm sad it's over.
