Paint the Town Pink

A sneak peak at what's going on with the dress... (although the final product is still drying and has some work to be done on it, so here are some pictures of the process).

I had a fitting of my toille on Tuesday with my model and had a few alterations to make to the pattern. After making them, it didn't take too long to sew the dress from the final gold/white brocade. Here, my friend tried it on for me so I could check the sewing and proportions and so i could have a picture of it before I dyed it:

Me, immersing the dress in a bath of fuchsia dye. Nothing more to be said. Other than the fact that this was pretty terrifying.

At this point, I took out the trash, washed all the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, watched this week's episode of So You Think You Can Dance online (my favorite show ever...not that that should surprise anyone)...
...and what happened next is to be revealed later.

Final Fitting

A few sleepless days have gone by since our final fitting and I never thought I could get so much done in so little time. Turns out...when you give up on most of your sleep and a good amount of your meals, there are way more hours in the day (for fashion's sake, right)? Anyways, as you can see...I FINALLY got to shorten the sequins under the skirt to the length I wanted (in case I hadn't shared here in bloggerville, I sewed the sequins REALLY long so we could decide on the length later and it really bothered me to look at it so long).
Everything is coming along well. Now I'm just in search of the perfect shoes. Suggestions are more than welcome. heels.
Much more to come. And only 4 days until the final presentation.
