I found this old photo from a few years ago when we first adopted Cooper. Ha - he and little Mickey were the same size!
So if you follow Hexie Love Open Studios, you saw that yesterday I learned something new. Daughter 2 recently purchased a sequined gown to wear to an awards ceremony (and on her honeymoon). It needed to be hemmed - 2 inches shorter. Typically, we'd send it out to an alterations specialist. But...I googled it and found some instructions that seemed doable.
I purchased $3.00 worth of satin for the facing and took the plunge yesterday. The scariest part was cutting an inch off the dress! It worked out beautifully - now all I have left is the hand stitching which I'll work on a bit every day.
I spent the rest of the day stitching hexies.
Have a great day!
