An ugly orange suit…



You may have seen me mention a few times on Facebook that I am making my sister a silk suit for her next pageant.  I got started on the muslin…well, ugly orange broadcloth if you want to get technical…this week and I love how it is turning out!  Now that I’ve got the right fit, I am going to start cutting it out in the next couple of days.  I can’t wait to get started!  The neckline is my favorite part!!  I share some more pics when I get more done.  What do you think so far??

  2. Ok, do you like the orange or hate it?! LOL I love it! I also like the taper over the hips (I have no idea what to call that). It’s very flattering!

  4. this is going to be really pretty. you are such a great sister to do this all the tme.
