little bits of scraps make flowers

 One week ago my daughter went to one of our family friends weddings where she caught the bouquet.  The dress she wore to the wedding which you see at the right and above was 5 inches too long before that event.  So quickly I cut off the hem and she did a hand rolled hem on it so she could wear it to the event. 
 Last night I cut the hem into little circles 30 of them . Then folded those in half and did a gathering stitch on the raw edge side stringing 5 of these together to make a flower.  I had enough fabric from the hem to make 6 of these flowers.  I  then sewed them to her upper left shoulder of the dress and removed the bow from center front and stitched it into the middle of the flower cluster.  I also went through my buttons and picked out rhinestone buttons from three generations of our family from both sides  an sewed them to the center of the flowers to add a little sparkle.

 Recently I did A similar style detail on a dress for play Anything Goes.  In this dress I sewed the entire dress all 5 layers of skirt and all bias. and ruffle sleeves and lots of flowers on it.

 Here you can see what the flowers look like up close
 prior to flowers and rhinestones being added.

  This is the lovely Mandee Shaffer who use to be one of my bosses who draped this dress for me to make.  She is now the Manager of the West Valley Hale costume shop here she is being silly and just wearing a costume for an upcoming play.  I so miss working with her one of my most favorite people in all the world.
