Design Wall Monday--Oct 17, 2011

Another repeat--all that is happening here is wedding wedding wedding!  For my kind blog readers who were concerned about the outfit I'm making for the wedding, I present the following:
Hong Kong finishes on the seams of the jacket.

A hem, a button, and the jacket will be finished.  It looks better on me than the hanger, I promise!  The matching dress has yet to be made but will be much simpler than this 15 piece jacket.  A "backup" dress I ordered from Macy's should be arriving today as well.

I was missing the quilting portion of my sewing time so after the all the concentration on the jacket work I cut and sewed the binding for the wedding quilt and got some of the border strips together.  Ahh, that's better!  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times

I bet your outfit will be stunning on you. It has been so long since I sewed clothing, I'm not sure I could remember how to alter a pattern to fit me. Beautiful work on the jacket.

The best Paydays are when you get to welcome new members to the family the 'easy' way- by marriage. Enjoy the remaining time. The back yard is looking great.

Great job on the jacket Annie. (Every time I see that fabric it looks a different shade!)Onto the dress.

How many days to go?

You're so organized, Annie! The jacket is gorgeous and your work is perfection! I love that you have a backup dress - something I know I would do!
Cheers!

Wow, you are so brave to be making an outfit for a WEDDING! I'd say only 40% of the time something I make is wearable. I try hard but after all the work it doesn't look quite right. Make sure you model it for us!

Wedding prep is reaching a fevered pitch - so exciting!

My prep for my first child's wedding was to buy a dress on sale. I wore that dress to all four kid's weddings and never again: it hangs on a door in my bathroom. I told the kids that if they married a second time I was coming in jeans. Really scared the first child who married a second time. ;-) Great jacket.
