I bought the sleeve fabric for Bridget's dress today. It is a soft navy blue organza. It has a subtle metallic sheen that helps to “dress-up” the cotton without making it look drab. Very nice. I'll cut out her dress and perhaps mine tomorrow.
We were originally thinking a lighter blue for the sleeves but after looking around I decided that darker would be better. I was a bit concerned about visually cutting the outfit up too much. All one color is typically more slimming. Besides all dark with the silver trim and beads will be much more striking. Bridget agreed and she looks very good in "striking". :>
I worked on my Arwen headdress a bit tonight. I shortened that one row and started work on the end flowers. I didn't get very far with the flowers though - I got too involved in the movie I was watching (a bluegrass/blues concert called "Down from the Mountain" – way too much fun) and forgot the needlework in my lap. *silly Jenny*
