Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving all!!!!

I hope that everyone has a fabulous turkey, carb, pie filled day! We are going to some friend’s house this afternoon. Then it is 3 days of sewing craziness here at SLT. I have 12 days before we leave for Vegas & the SASS Convention.

So here is what is on the sewing list before then…..

A couple of these shirts for John, and a vest to match my reception dress(See below).

Finishing up this dress…..
Front - Harper's Bazar June 1879
Inspiration - Harper's Bazar 1879

Working on getting a better fit with some other dresses that I have (now that I have a corset).

Then this is the big one! I am making my version of this dress:

From this fabric & solid brown "satin" with wide pink ribbon....

Then if there is time finishing up this:
WIP - Split riding skirt panel
That will become one of these:

from the Laughing Moon Split Skirt pattern.

Then I have to share one last thing. I get to wear this fabulous dress thanks to my too sweet friend Gina. Isn't it gorgeous!??

Hope that everyone has a great day & if you are crazy enough to go shopping tomorrow, be safe & may the deal Gods bless you!

That dress is going to be beautiful! I love the blue material that you are using for that split skirt, it looks perfect for that pattern!
