Progress......

I've made this 'dress' in two parts.  Well, there are more than two because it's a sample, so there are overlays so I can make it look different.  But the skirt is finished, yippee!!!!
Here it is on my form.

There's 2 layers of interlining so it looks very full.

The bustier is awaiting a zip, so no photos of that yet.

However the lace bodice overlay is well on it's way................


....but as it is now past finishing time that is all that is happening today, Wednesday.  It only has to be finished before Saturday, tomorrow is busy day doing other stuff and I still have to make an organza bustle or two!!!!  

No pressure!

sewing sewing

Well, I did promise my daughter her Chanel Jacket, but it's had to be put on hold!  I have been forgiven, because I've got a deadline for making a sample dress and 'option' bits.  So I have been sewing at a frantic rate.

Here, as a taster, is a photo of the silk and the lace I am using. There is more to come!!!! 



Migrating my website!!!!!

It's all very exciting!!  Sometime in the next 72 hours, so I am told, my website will change over to the new format.   I've still got new photos to add, but I'm waiting on outside forces for those!!!!
Keep checking www.thelimegate.co.uk and let's cross fingers!!!
