A Sneaky Peak

Ok, so I actually have been doing a fair amount of sewing… but it has all been skating costumes.  My competition dresses always take a long time to make, especially compared to my regular practice dresses.  Often I have to make multiple versions to meet my expectations (this year was no exception), mostly because I am always trying tricky things that I don’t bother with on the practice dresses, and finally there is the extensive amount of time I spend beading the darned things.  So, to be honest, they aren’t anywhere near finished, and I don’t like to reveal the competition dresses until after they get skated in anyway, BUT I do want to point out that I am actually still sewing.  And I did promise you guys a sneak peak at what has been going on, since you probably won’t get to see the finished projects until July at the earliest.  So, here it is:

Sneak Peak #1
Sneak Peak #2
Sneak Peak #3

Oh, and just in case you are wondering – yes I am sewing the appliques down by hand.  This will account for lack of getting any other sewing done in the foreseeable future.  This is why I don’t get a lot of normal sewing done in the months of April, May, and June.  Then with regional/national competitions I get less done in July and August.  This is why I have no summer clothes.  Oh well.  I think the rhinestones sort of make up for it.
