About a month ago, the husband of a good friend of mine asked me to custom make her a dress for Christmas. She wanted a black nursing dress since she's currently 7 months pregnant, and loves the color black.
I told him it would be no problem as long as I'd have extra black fabric from the last dress that I had just sent to the cutter. Luckily there was extra fabric, so I gave him the thumbs up.
But due to that fabric not being available for a while, I picked it up the day before we left for Christmas vacation. Our travels were a mess with delayed flights, canceled flights, getting home at 4am, etc etc etc. Anyway, I started the dress at 10am on Christmas Eve, and I was determined to get it done. The last thing I wanted was to ruin his Christmas surprise for his wife.
So, I sewed for almost 5 hours straight. I didn't mind it either. Grandma was here to keep my little 3 (going on 13) year old girl happy, and my husband brought me food and drinks throughout those 5 hours.
My darn sewing machine and serger started acting up when I was almost done though, so you might see a few faces being pulled in this time lapse video.
It really makes me look amazing, don't worry, in real life, I'm a lot slower. Obviously there's a lot of sewing that got left out of the video (I think my phone died) but you get the idea! Enjoy!
