After I finished the flower girl dress, it was time to start on the sash for my niece’s wedding dress. She wanted the sash to match the sash on the flower girl dress–it also matches the dresses the bridesmaids will be wearing. I put off making this sash because it is so long, and had to be turned after it was sewn, and I hate doing that. When I make tote bags, I fold and press, then top stitch the handles so that there is no turning involved. It’s just that the turning makes my fingers hurt.
My husband is such a good sport. He knew that this picture would wind up on the internet, but he doesn’t care. I guess I could have gone outside and tied the sash around a tree, but it was cold out there and I didn’t want to get the sash dirty. And FabGrandpa was handy, so there ya go. I am sure Stefanie will be a beautiful bride. The wedding party’s wardrobe is certainly looking good so far.
