Little Dresses of Blue

  Today I finished both junior bridesmaid dresses.  Phew, what a load off my mind!  They weren't difficult to make, just time consuming and I got stuck on the tulle ruffles for the petticoat.  I despise working with tulle.  I think if I ever have to work with it again I'm going to figure out how to use my gathering foot, stitch the tulle to a binding and applique the turned binding to wherever the ruffle needs to go.  It will give a lot neater edge and possibly be easier to work with.
   My buttonhole attachment came in handy, once I figured out how to make it work properly.  It only took 10 test buttonholes to get a perfect one.
   Later tonight I will start on my own dress for the wedding.  I've got a week- no problem.
