TA DA!

Here, finally, is the finished product!

This is the Bag Lady's niece, who kindly consented to having her picture plastered all over the Bag Lady's blog! (Personally, the Bag Lady thinks her niece could have a second career as an Internet model, but the Bag Lady might be just a wee bit prejudiced!)

As predicted, the fabric was a little difficult to work with, and the lining material was even worse, but the Bag Lady thinks everything turned out well, and her niece was pleased with it. She seemed quite thrilled to have a new, unique dress to bring in 2009. (Doesn't she look good?!)

I'm envious of your dressmaking skills. The dress looks wonderful and the niece equally so! I bet she has a wonderful New Year with a new party dress.

the Bag Lady said...

dfLeah - Thanks! It suits her really well, and fits perfectly (thank heavens!)

Sagan - Thanks!

Dawn - Thanks! I hope she has a great New Year's Eve, too.

Lucas said...

No, BL. She looks GREAT!!! And I believe you could have a second career as a top notch dress maker! When do you start taking orders for dresses from your bloggity buds?

the Bag Lady said...

Aw, thanks, Lucas. That's very kind of you.
(and any time you want a tailor-made dress, just let me know!)

The dress looks Fabulous! Little L looks wonderful in it...she's all growed up! Beautiful Job.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, sis! She does look gorgeous, doesn't she? (and all growed up indeed!)

Marste said...

FanTAStic. Love the dress. And your neice is lovely, too! ;) The fabric is great, though; definitely worth the trouble to sew it (in my opinion).

the Bag Lady said...

Marste - thanks! I think the fabric takes the dress from "nice" to "fabulous"! (Even if it did give me a little trouble, it was worth it!) And I hope my niece gets as much pleasure from wearing it as I did from making it for her!

Melissa said...

Fantastic! She looks darling!

Hilary said...

Lovely dress and model. It would seem you had a great model to work for and she had a wonderful seamstress for hire. You two make a good team.

the Bag Lady said...

Melissa - Thanks! I think she looks darling all the time, anyway!

Hilary - thanks! It was fun making something for her.

Christine said...

Ooooh she looks amazing!

Looks like it turned out very well indeed Bag Lady! Your niece looks lovely!

Thanks, Javachick! There were a few tense moments, but it did finally come together.

It's a spectacular dress, but she outshines it!
(The fabric sure would scare me.)

Great new dress & a happy, wonderful- looking model!
You should be proud of both. :)
