Mermaid Dress

I made it! Thanks to my sister, who let me drop by to borrow her dress form, (I really need to get my own) I got these shots last night before I shipped it off this morning. I actually got everything I wanted to on it. I had a few late nights/early mornings to do it though.

I really do like the new bodice com pared to the old one

Another 2:00 am night last night.  I got the pearl beads taken off and restrung. They look much better closer together.

I also got the elastic on the top of the skirt taken off and several more rows added in the black cotton thread to add some needed length to the top. I got about halfway around crocheting the elastic back in before I just had to call it a night.  I think that’s the last thing I need to do.  Hopefully I can finish that up tonight and get it packaged up and ship it out on my way to work tomorrow!

I just went on to the CGOA website and completed my entry form and paid the entry fee, so I am just about ready to go! I will be so glad when I can confirm it’s been delivered and we’re all set!  Containing my excitement is beginning to be difficult!

20170627_013808.jpgI finished the straps tonight, (or rather this morning since it’s almost 2:00 am.) I added elastic around the top when doing the edging and tightened it up before adding the straps for the gathered effect.

Tomorrow I have to get the pearls redone and sew in the slip. Then I’ve got to get it mailed!

20170625_225406I finished the surface crocheting today and even got all the way around on the edging. Tomorrow I’ll do the straps, then hopefully redo the pearls.

20170625_123405.jpgI was up until 3:00 last night (this morning) and I got so close. Hoping to finish up today and then get the edging done around the top. Then I still need to put straps on, do the pearls, and sew the slip into the skirt!

It is an amazing beautiful day here in Kansas City today! The baby is napping and the older kids are swimming while I work. I stayed up past 1:00 am this morning working, and I feel like I need to stay up tonight until I get all the way around. I just realized I’m getting super close to the end of the month and I’m running out of time!

I got my new business cards in the mail today! This was really important to me to get done before going to Chicago next month so that I can pass out cards with the correct website when I meet new friends!
