From Start to Finish

11:30 am, start your engines.  I am determined to finish this poodle skirt in one day so lets see how I do.

The hardest part was cutting and fusing the applique'  I fused them with the fusible steam backing, but I went over each note and the guitar and hand stitched them so they were secure.

Sewing together the skirt was a piece of cake and also the petty coat,  the hardest part with that was sewing through the elastic bands, I don't think my Pfaff is very strong for things like that.  

Dyna helped me out with the waist band as you can see, thank God, I really needed her.  

After I finished, I woke Stevi up and it was a hit,  I can't wait to see it in the sunlight, all the sequines should be fabulous.

9:04pm Finish

Ps.........I'm pooped, Goodnight!

Dyna is such an angel! I know if it weren't for Muffin, I don't know who'd be raising Jack. Aren't dogs amazing like that?

I am so excited about the skirt you made! It looks gorgeous! When will you be making yours and G.G.'s? Same colors?

That turned out GREAT! WOW! What the heck happened to my girls? It's because I didn't force you to do all the domestic stuff. That's why you like to do it now. So you can thank ME!

This is so cool, and pretty, what a terrific job, I only ever made one thing, a dress and I managed to sew the zipper to the front of the dress as well as the back, as we say over here
" what a plonker"
Needless to say, my sewing skills are not in demand. My 12 year old would kill for this glitzy skirt, well I'll be honest so would I.
