Anniversary Dress Part 1

This is part 1 of the anniversary dress. My husband and I were married January 29th nine years ago. I don't have photos because we never had a wedding. But we plan on having one next year for our 10th year. I'll post if I'm still blogging! This stuff is a headache at times.
I have decided to make my dress this year because I anticipate him taking me out....somewhere. (LOL) Good luck, huh? Well, anyhow, I bought this pattern a few weeks back and I love it. You know I had to wait for it to go on sale though. Here it is:
I did letter b with c's front strap. It is in a hounds-tooth red and black. It used to look like this:
then it looked like this:

I kept working till late night through these steps.
1. Neatly cut out and waiting for me to finish eating dinner.
2. I put the skirt together first because it was the easiest! Make sure you Iron as you go. This is a must if you want professional looking germants.

3. I have to put the darts in the back bodice. I never get these right on the first try. Sew, here I go to see if I can get them right.
4. Next I had to put the front bodice and the back bodice together.
The bodice has Princess Seams.
Princesses can be a pain in the a**!

Well, I have to go now because one Princess got on my nerves and the other one...

Well, you can see for yourself. And my babysitter is wide awake.
Good night Princess.
Good night serger.Until later,
Schey, the Princess, and the serger.

Thank you Danietta. I am glad that I can bring a laugh to the faces of our innocent little ones. A laugh does the heart good these days. I hope you keep coming back to visit. God Bless you too. ;)
