Was that the title to the movie with Katherine Heigl?? No, the movie is 27 dresses. This is also not for the same plot, but it does explain what I've been doing for the past few weeks.
As I mentioned in THIS post, I'm making dresses for the Quilt Dance at Lehigh Valley Charter Arts. I'm finally done, and wanted to share some of them. There are 16 dresses altogether, plus a vest for the male dancer, and I also made a skirt for the soloist who sings the opening of this piece. The students love the dresses! I'm thrilled. I added vintage buttons to some, and other details to others. One has red trim, so I'm calling it my "1950's Diner Waitress" dress. I need to get a photo of the group, and that dress. It was fun to add little touches.
The first one is made with a grey mottled cotton. It looks great on stage. This one has cuffed sleeves, and vintage brass buttons, in an olive green woven polyester.
And the skirt fabric is great, too.
And I'm thrilled to have finished these dresses! It's been an interesting process, and now I have tons of fabric scraps to cut into squares and strips for some scrappy quilts. I have lots planned, and need to get the Accuquilt GO! cutter out and get the piles cleaned up, cut, and sorted.
Thanks for visiting!
