About two weeks before Christmas, I was commissioned to make a bridesmaid dress for a petite little thang before she boarded a plane to Asia on New Years Day.
Knowing it was a tight deadline and knowing it the Holidays and knowing I was going to be busy with family and travel and other things I stupidly fill my time with.... I said yes anyway.
She gave me the fabric (Thai silk) and an idea of the type of dress she wanted. I modeled it off of a Vogue pattern (1192) and made a few alterations to make it seem more bridesmaids-y (cut the back into a V, shortened it, altered the sleeves from a cap to a tank)
I had enough time for a shower and make-up so we could bring in 2012 at the San Francisco Symphony!
