Wedding Pictures

I forgot to post these. Here's the beautiful bride and my son-in-law. He's a great guy and I'm so happy for them. 

Jamaica was beautiful but the COVID restrictions made it a tad stressful but thankfully everyone made it there and back. Pictured below from left to right, my son, me, my daughter, my grandson and my granddaughter.

We're glistening because it was hot! The Royalton resort was very nice but beware they don't serve American size portions. So I recommend going to the buffet or ordering at least 2 meals if you do room service and please be prepared to tip EVERYBODY.

I thought this would be a quick and easy make. I was going to wear it to see Janet Jackson last weekend and that didn't work out.

I'm making the jumpsuit and when I got to the instructions on how to attach the pants to the bodice I had a complete melt down. It just didn't make sense no matter how I tried so I walked away to sew another day.

I LOVE this fabric, I found it at JoAnn's, it's lace lined with white polyester. I think the white really makes the lace fabric pop. Since my pants were lined I threw the instructions across the floor and proceeded the best way I knew how. It's not finished but I should finish it this weekend. 

I worked out the construction issues. Instead of having an attached band I created a casing for the elastic between my lining and fabric and I'm going to insert the elastic and then attach the pants to the bodice. I will definitely post a finished picture.
