Just got back form DGD's, she is going to make Vogue 8571
for her June promotion-from-middle-school ceremony.
However, she wants the back neckline a little lower, and she
wants to "Anthonyize" (if you watch Project Runway you'll
get the reference
with some sort of pleated or twisted ("NOT gathered or a
ruffle, please Grandma") trim around the neckline band.
Today, we altered the pattern back neckline and made up a
muslin, just from the waist up. There will be some tweaking
to the way the neck band fits, but so far so good. She
chose a gorgeous deep teal green for the skirt and bodice
and black for the trim, both in a silky poly/spandex knit.
I left her with the muslin on her dress form so she can play
around with creating the look she wants for the "Custom
Anthony Trim". I think we are just going to use the narrow
rolled serger hem on the trim strips to reduce the bulk in
the band seam.
I had to rush back to be here before the tilers came, but
we'll work on it more this weekend. She is unbelievable
apt! Pays close attention and follows directions well.
What a pleasure it is to work with her. We talked a bit
about her plans this summer, we decided on several more
teaching/sewing sessions. ;-)
