Woman vs. Dress

At the present moment, I'm swamped in custom work. Not so great for my creativity, but wonderful where finances are concerned. For that reason I'm grateful for the ability to measure, cut, and sew. :-)

One project that's in the works is the conversion of the train of a bulky and cumbersome yet beautiful wedding dress into a bolero jacket.

It's so massive and overwhelming for lil ol' me.

So far I've lost my seam ripper.
Somewhere inside the dress, I believe.




It must've just swallowed it up, and I want it back dangit!!!
Need it actually.





I know it's somewhere in those folds and crevasses.


We'll see how this goes...



peace!

That dress is gorgeous I can't wait to see the final product. And your photos? Hilarious!

Good luck! My seam rippers always have a habit of disappearing, too. And then I buy replacements, and as soon as I do I find the missing one. I think I have 3 or 4 now...

Can't wait to see your finished product.

What beautiful fabric. That is gonna be a beautiful jacket, for an obviously funky woman =). Good luck finding your ripper!

Man that sounds like that is going to be a fly bolero jacket. Better go get another seam ripper because it looks like the dress won.

Your face! Oh, it's so expressive. And by the look of that dress, it's a Herculean enterprise the one ahead of you, my dear. Happy birthday, fellow Scorpio!

Greetings from London.
