So Uber Son and the Lovely Jean will be getting married in August. In that event there will be 3 little girls doing various things...that could always change....and the colors for the wedding are gray and blue. So I'm tasked with making two size 6 and one size 5 dresses. I promised myself I would make the lace go the right way and make the taffeta go the same way. See this is the lace.
Here's the pattern Lovely Jean chose. I made the test dress and found that I didn't appreciate their assembly directions. Imagine that! haha. I blogged earlier about the Test Dress and I'm glad I made that one first.
They call for the dress to be almost completely assembled before putting in the zipper. I, of course, have to change that. I wanted to use invisible zippers-I like the way they look. So I assembled the back and before I joined at the shoulder I installed the zipper.
Anyways, once I had it the way it would hold together, I just put it on the handy adapter foot part from Bernie.
See how slick that is? Nice!! Unfortunately I could only get two invisible zippers in the correct color, so I'll be doing a lapped application on one of the dresses.Here's the front of the dress-see how the lace is going the right way? YAY!

SO for last Mothers Day I told my kids that I just wanted my driveway sealed. SO in preparation for that I bought this!
