Tri Cities, Wash...
All of the fabric came from Jo-Anns. The pale yellow stuff has little sequins throughout. Not too many, but just enough for a little bit of sparkle. I used my embroidery module to add the swirls on the sash fabric before I sewed it all together. I thought it pulled it all together a little better than just using a solid color.
I liked how the edging turned out on the lining. I think I used stitch #77 on my machine (Bernina: aurora 430). If you stitch in just the right spot, it catches the edge to make this scallopped edge. No one sees it when she wears it, but when she put the dress on for the first time, she noticed the lining edge and ooh-ed and aah-ed over it. It’s the little things sometimes that make us feel fancy.
