Making items for a dance

So I go junking a lot at thrift shops and garage sales the fabric in this dress is a mixture of a 2 year olds dress the purple skirt part that I cut apart for the bodice and a embroidered cream lace curtain I used for the skirt.  The pink was gifted to me for the jacket and the brown under skirt and cream lining are just scrapes I had.

I made some buttons for the dress and the jacket.  This was just made out of the fabric scrapes from cutting out the bodice.  I  fussy cut the scrapes to center the flowers on the button
The button loops are just a crochet chain of 20,  I should have made them 15 in retrospect.

 This is the dress when it was quickly pinned on my dress form.  This is a dress that you can not buy the pattern for.  You might be able to find something similar.  But this pattern is one we draped and drafted.
 This is the dress still under construction while having the jacket half made.  Originally I wanted the buttons on the back of the jacket but after some modifications to the pattern I flipped the jacket piece around and put them on the front.
 Daughter trying on the dress  was still working out some kinks in the dress.  This dress is fully boned.

 Here is the dress done with some of the accessories she and her sisters made to go with the dress.

 Here is my daughter Starr working on making the neck lace you can see in the above and below photos.

My oldest daughter China made these Hair pieces for her to wear to the dance.

 These are the matching earrings China made for Starr.
This is the corsage that all three of my daughters worke don together to match the outfit.

Below is the Necklace that Starr made for her younger sister to wear to the dance.
 This is the matching earrings.
 Starr made her younger sister a corsage and hair piece to wear with her dress.  Her dress I didn't have to make as I found it thrift shopping for 15 dollars.

 sorry blurry photo

 My kids don't wear shoes in the house she had red shoes to go to the dance in that match the flowers on the dress.

Making costumes at work

Yep a small sample of what I do at work. Sew like crazy on industrial machines.  These are parts of costumes for the play In the Time of Trolls.
the sand cape of one of the winds and the flower cape of another wind and the start of winter cape for another wind... there are four wind capes in this show.  When they are completely done all four will lite up.
The hat in the back ground that is yellow we made and embroidered on the embroidery machine at work not in that order. Above are two of the four wind capes being made this show all for will light up I am making 3 to 3 1/2 of them then the designer will light then up like the one below.
Yes that is me sewing in this photo...thanks to the designer of the show Carolyn.  I am working on the ribbon skirt for the troll princess in that photo. You can see the designers pin board in front of me as I was working on it.  The skirt itself you can see below and close up the detail of in other photo below that the skirt is  about 90 percent done I should finish it today.  The university came by yesterday to make a promotional video for this play.  Yep of all days to wear a  hat oh well...  May end up in that video either sewing or ironing or something that I have to do as I make this costume as they were just filming everything we were all doing and I was just trying to get the project done so I could go on to the next cape.

Irish crochet dress


My oldest daughter made another dress for her little cousin who will be born in a few months.  The first dress was for 0-3 months this one is for 3-6 mos.  She was surprised at how much more time it takes to make a dress that small with only a minor size change.

Once again it is size 10 thread and a hook size of 9.  She used light blue for the detailing of the roses and around the edges.
