Diary block #49
As you can see this block is a wedding dress. My daughter found her dress and bought it this past week. It looks nothing like this. She has decided not to tell anyone what it looks like before the wedding. I like the idea!
She did a great job, the very first place we went to she decided on the 5th dress she tried on, that's my girl! Decisive!!!
I had a few issues with this block.......
I tried to actually make a dress that would be appliqued to the block. A half hour later I changed the plan. I cut out a dress shape, fused it on to the fabric and sewed the tulle on top. Originally it was on a pink background until I accidently wrote on it with a permanent marker. I cut it out leaving the small pink edge and decided on a rose (for romance) print fabric that looks much prettier than the plain pink.
The beaded sashes are a hot trend as well as beading on a lot of the dresses we saw at the store. My favorite moment was when she tried on "the" dress, the other women in the room told her she looked like a princess!
So far the whole wedding process has gone pretty smooth. Let's hope it continues!!!
