Snow Ball Dance

Sat. night a lady from church called to ask if I would make a formal gown for her daughter for the high school snowball dance the next Sat. My first thought of course was that it was really short notice but figured I could get one together in a week's time. It was late Monday night however before she purchased the desired materials and Tuesday morning before I got my hands on them. By this time I am starting to stress knowing that I had a pretty busy schedule already for the week but with a couple late nights and one all day run at the sewing machine I have it complete. The pattern they selected was Simplicity's 4070, style F. Being tall, pale and blonde the teal fabric was the perfect pick for her and she was quite excited this afternoon when she came for a fitting and saw herself in the mirror. I am hoping to get my hands on a photo of her actually in the dress and not just one of it hanging from my living room ceiling. I had not had the tulle ruffle on yet when she came for her fitting so we shall see what she thinks in the morning when I deliever it to her....for now though, I am crawling into my warm bed and sleeping. I'm zonked!
