But as soon as the dress was finished, it was whisked away even before I got a chance to remove the blue markings for the zipper and double check for stray threads!
Needless to say, I didn't get any photos of the dress on the hanger let alone on the wearer.
So in my best whining voice, I asked for some photos and this is what was sent to my Blackberry.
This one is blurry.
Nice shot of the oak doors.
Oh, am I whining?
Well, at least you can't see the blue wash-out pen marks around the zipper that would be more than visible in a regular photo.
As for stray threads ..... who knows?
No matter. I do appreciate that our model co-operated despite being exposed to chilly morning air and her mom (my daughter) didn't forget to send me photos.
The bottom line is you can't go wrong with a Fairy Tale dress. It's easy to make, looks good and it fits like a glove.
However it's too bad you can't see the tucked hem on the dress. The machine tucked hem saved time instead of hand sewing so I could get the dress done quickly and sent off to wearer tout suite. Hence no photos and my whining.
