Patterns and Calico

Went to Spotlight in Midland today and bought my patterns. I got two as i like the bodice from one and the skirt from the other, although i think i'll alter the skirt to ruche on one side only, like the Mancini 'Eve' dress. Undecided yet, but i'll try out both and see which i like. I bought the calico to mock up the dress first, as well as the boning and fastenings.

Tomorrow i'll visit a scrapbooking shop i know of to buy some paper punches for the invites. I'd like to send out the Save the Date cards a year ahead of the wedding, so i've got plenty of time to make them, but it's something fun to do :) and i get tired of sewing very quickly.

Dress cost so far: $19.60 for the patterns and $34.38 for the calico and fittings ($53.98).
