Elvish sleeves & everyday skirts

I've been very productive today. I finally put the second Elvish sleeve together and put both sleeves in the dress. Bridget is very excited and I’m excited that she will stop bugging my about it. :> I had her try the gown on and I marked the hem. The skirt ended up a little short so I'm going to use some bias tape to finish the bottom. I need to go out and buy that and some navy blue thread. Apparently we are out.

I know I was going to wait to post pics until the Elvish was finished but well... I changed my mind. A girl’s prerogative right? I love the beading she did on the sleeve band. As usual pics don't really do it justice. She will be doing the same trim along the neckline as well.

I also sewed that black skirt today, hem and all. It just needs a hook & eye. Cute if I do say so myself. I also finally got around to working on the hem on that navy blue skirt. It's all pinned and ready to go. I have to wait for the navy thread before I can finish it. Maybe I'll go out tonight for that...

I should work on the Elvish or Rohan hems but I'm ready for a break. I think I'll go work on my pocket for a little while...

Wow! She did such a fab job on those sleeves--totally jealous. ;) hehehe. You did a great job on the dress construction too, it looks like it fits her perfectly. :)

I know, disgusting genius. As for me, well the only reason it fits so well is that she has been losing weight. Somehow I made it a little snug. I always do that! ...that whole "ease" thing...

Wow, that's gorgeous! I love the beadwork, and the dress fits her beautifully. Tell her what a pretty girl she is. :)

Would you mind terribly if I friended you? I've been keeping up via friends' friends lists, but I'd like to add you if you don't. Don't feel obligated to reciprocate, though. Just thought I'd ask. (:

Please feel free to friend away... I don't mind at all. :>

I'll pass on your message to Bridget too. I am quite of your opinion by the way. :>

Yeah, it's been a lot of fun to team-up on this costume. Actually anything I do with Bridget is fun. :>
