I am such the blogger bum. I work two jobs now and it seems impossible to ever take a picture of any of my sewing projects. I happen to have called off work today so I could do this dress for my granddaughter who has a christmas party at school. The picture does not do the dress justice. The fabric is stretch velvet, deep purple with glitter all thru it. I did narrow the sleeves and there is a variation on where the embellishment is added to the dress. She was so excited and could not sleep all night because she knew I was diligently trying to get the dress done in the middle of the night.!!!
