So I was asked to make V's friend a dress for Disney. It has now turned into 2 dresses, 1 traditional Disney and 1 princess. My problem is that she wasn't very specific about what she wanted. She is Very wishy washy. I am doing a Simply Sweet. I suggested light purple and light pink alternating with princesses on each panel. I asked her to come over to measure her daughter. It was a 3 ring freaking circus with this 6 year old running all over my house/my parents, chasing my cat crawling on the floor, shaking my moms sewing table. ugh. I forgot to ask her to try on a sample so a couple days later I had her come again and try on the dress. SAME THING. The kid is running all over the house crawling all over the floor (in this sample dress) while I chat with her mother. It may be my house but it is not my place to tell her daughter how to behave. I can't imagine anyone allowing their kid to run all over someone elses house. If V ever did that ...... well you can bet she wouldn't because well she just wouldn't. She knows it is just not okay. my parents were telling this little girl to go upstairs and not to do stuff and she wouldn't even listen to them. This kid is a total mess and that is because her mother does not control her AT ALL!

Ok that aside. so mom is wishy washy I suggested a light pink and purple for the skirt with princesses on them, she said yes. I specificially said light fabrics so the princesses would stand out. Next thing they come to try on the sample dress just to see size and she is asking about white she now wants white in it. white, pink and purple panels alternating. Okay..... (well that isn't going to look great but whatever). Next thing I hear she wants a darker pink for the ruffle and straps. so I go get a fabric that coordinates with the light pink and purple but is a darker pink. I tell her I got a darker pink. Now she wants dark pink and white. OMG I'm going insane.

Last night I sent her a list of options, She texts me this morning and says she'll get back to me this afternoon. The full afternoon passes and I never hear from her.

I really wanted to get a start on this dress so I decided not to seek out supply work today. Well that turned into a waste of a day!

It becomes clear to me as I analyze her reaction looking at the fabrics, that she doesn't like the colors at all, but she didn't tell me that. I went out looking today and found a different fabric that I know she'll like better, as I know understand that she likes darker/brighter pink. I found a bright pink and purple tiara fabric that when used with alternating white for the skirt, I think it will look good. I also bought a coordinating fabric that goes with it for the ruffle. I text her tell her I found a fabric I think she'll like better and I'll email her a picture. She texts back awesome I'll email you back this evening.

I do not hear from her until 11:15 pm. Argh so irritating because now I replied with a question and who knows when that will get answered. What drives me nuts is this. She is a SAHM. Her daughter is in school full days. I DO NOT mean to imply that SAHM stay at home all day or anything not at all. what is frustrating is that she said she would get back to me and didn't until hours later. She knew I was at home waiting for an answer. I said please get back to me asap I'd like to start the dress today.

So 11:15 I hear back from her. She likes the fabrics I found today better and she thinks her daughter will as well, And I quote! "I'm really not a fan of light or pastel pink and purple." WTH If you had said that from the very beginning when I suggested light pink and purple, I would not have wasted money buying fabric. Sure it will get used eventually but not the point! If you didn't like light pink and purple, why agree to it in the first place.

Sigh..... So I email back asking what she wants for the ruffle and the sleeves and if she wants sparkly blue for the tiara applique on the bodice or a sparkly purple to match the other colors in the dress. so she emails back and asks for a white ruffle and sparkly purple for the tiara and for the sleeves too! (uhhh nope not an option that material is too expensive)

so wmailing back and forth tonight and most of it is decided. Talking about the second dress appliquees Same simply sweet design with panels and appliques and she wants me to do a mickey head, Minnie head and my first visit appliques and then repeat them on the back of the dress so each applique is used twice. Why would you do that, why not pick 6 different appliques.

sigh my head hurts. it is decided tho to have 6 different ones and she just said I trust your design so I'm going with my gut and doing the appliques that will look best.

This woman makes me nuts!! lol

okay done.... hmmm that wasn't really a mini vent. First prize to the one who actually read the whole thing.

I feel a lot better however!

Uhm I hope you aren't doing this for free. Free means you get what I give you. This one is way to high maintenance though I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Your idea sounds great. I've never seen one of those designs but I am sure they exist somewhere.

Oh no! I hope they are better soon. I remember when my younger dd had croup. Do they still tell you take them outside in the cold night air to get them to breath better?

Here is the updated version of my iron that I love:

I don't think that you would like an over the door iron since you do so much ironing. They just aren't as stable as a regular iron. Also, mine is kind of a pain to put up and down.

Glad that you could vent and that you feel better. It sounds like this is a difficult mom with work with and the kid sounds like a nightmare. I used to have a friend with a child like that. I hated having them over. They left a path of destruction wherever they went. I think next time you plan something out with this mom, you need to have a sit down chat with her (while the kid is in school) and write out a plan. Either that or have her give you 3 colors of fabric to work with and then tell her she has to give you free rein over everything else. I can't wait to see your finished dresses.

Oh hell no she's paying for them! I am definitely charging less than I should, I already gave a price. I said $30 per dress.

Good thoughts Diane, I never knew there was a problem, because she agreed to light pink and purple, yes that's good, she said. if there was a problem she should have said can we go so I went with it. Now I like the materials, they will get used, I have to pick up 1 more fabric that coordinates with the stuff I got and am not using for that dress. I'll wait until Fabricland has a 50% off sale again. all the materials I got were $20/ metre, but they were half price so makes it slightly more bearable. The last fabrics I got which were full price at a different store for $13/metre . And honestly part of it is my fault for just going and getting the material. I have learned now to go take pics and email pics of fabrics. Or doing a choice as you say. I've never made anything for anyone else.

I guess I can't blame her entirely, she just didn't know any better I think. Not that that is any excuse for the way her child behaves. I still have not heard if she is stopping by this am.

And on a sidenote, V was with me at the fabric store yesterday and she saw the carousel fabric again. So guess what we went home with.... and I paid full price for it! $16/metre I nearly died. It is so not worth $16/metre. but she really did like it. She wants a dress.

Thanks everyone for all the responses for my design organization question! Lots of good advise.

Like I have holidays then inside christmas, easter, st. Patricks day, valentines, etc. And same with Disney. I don't keep them by designer, but I keep all my emails in my gmail account so I can search for the name of the file in gmail.com and find the email from whomever I purchased it from.

Needleworks is free.
That sounds really good! I'll check it out. Thanks!

I also have a Disney Folder and in that folder I categorize all the Disney stuff in more folders, princess, Christmas, cruise, monsters inc, mouse heads etc... each design is subfoldered within those folders including a picture and separated by size.... confused lol Probably not the best way but so far it works and I don't have a ton of designs. I kinda wish I had kept designers separated and I may start doing that.
I bought the Applique Ave set also! I'll bet she earned more money in the last week than she has all year!

I got the 3000+ Disney designs from ebay. She had them on there all the time. And, she's in Canada! So you would get quick service. Took about 10 days for me to get the CD. I haven't looked at a ton of the designs yet, and have not stitched any of them, but plan to sometime this week. I'll let you know how they are. They got good reviews on ebay.

Wow! What an experience! That would have sent me around the bend as well. I'm glad you now have the fabrics she can live with and can move forward. I hope she likes the finished dresses. I have no idea what the going rate is for something like that, but $30 doesn't seem like enough for what all you've had to go through!! Good luck!

And the wolf shirt and skirt -- I love these designs from AZ Embroidery Barn because they stitch out so fast! I also wasn't keen on the fabric for the under layer of the skirt, but wanted to use from my stash. Once finished though I think it looks really nice together.





Thanks for looking and now you all know I didn't crawl in a hole and quit sewing. And I'm excited to sew and embroider again so I plan on doing more this week.
Love this outfit! That wolf design is beautiful. Glad you were able to use some non-favorite fabric for the underskirt.

I saw the coolest iron. It was expensive, like $120 for us, but it stays flat the whole time no accidental tipping or scoching etc.. kinda cool

No I will definitely be charging more if I do it for someone else, at least $40.

She came this morning to look at the fabric and decided on the tiara fabric for the panels, ruffle and straps(and white of course) so buying the diamond fabric was a waste in the end oh well

I am so bummed...I just got to whine a bit!


I love the beach. Almost as much as I love Disney.

For the past several years we have taken a beach trip as soon as the kids got out of school and a Disney vacation in either September or November.

This year, we owe my grand daughter a beach trip since she could not play at the beach last year. Her daddy wanted to take her for a short Disney trip for her birthday...so we thought we would combine the two...Disney for a few days then a weekend at the beach, just before school starts.

Somehow, that morphed into a million different things, ending with renting a 4 bedroom condo in Destin for a week. My son and his family and my daughter and her family were going with us. We put down a non refundable deposit and all was set in stone.

My daughter in law has been having problems deciding to put grand princess in public school or private school. She FINALLY made up her mind.....today...and found out the new school year starts while we are in Destin!

We could still go...except for the fact that the price gets MUCH more expensive when you divide things by 2 instead of 3....Overall it will add about $1000 to the trip...something I just can't swing right now.

So...I not only lost my beach vacation...I also lost my deposit!


GRRRRR

I would have charged her for each fabric I bought for that dress since she didn't tell you at first and you already spent the money.

That's very inexpensive for a dress with that many appliques. You are giving her a good bargain. Let's hope she appreciates it

Can you re-rent the beach place to somebody else? Even if you discounted it a bit, you might still get some of the money back.

Well I guess I have also learned that I should have just gone with what I originally thought rather than asking her what color she wants the straps or the ruffle or blah blah blah. I have learned my lesson! ultimately I do think the end result is going to look nicer.

Well, she wouldn`t have a clue how much it would cost so to her $30 is probably already expensive!

Mary Poppins dress..... with the carousel fabric no. well not for Disney anyways. I did just order fabric for V`s MP dress. She will eventually get a carousel dress tho it isn`t high on the list of priorities.

Today I didn`t have any work for school. I also didn`t call in this am to see if there was something. I took my chances. First week after march break there won`t be much. I will call in tomorrow morning to try and get some. of course now it is 12:20 and that means I will not have gotten enough sleep. If I don`t get enough sleep I have a headache that just lasts all day We will see. I am booked for all day Friday and part of me wants to just take tomorrow off too.... V might be sick tomorrow but I doubt it.

She went home sick from school today complaining of a headache and ear ache and a bit of a fever. Surprisingly Dad picked her up and took her home, her mom didn`t check with me to see if I was working or if I could pick her up and take her home. NOT that I am complaining. It was lovely to not have to pick her up and I got lots accomplished.

I got both dresses fully cut out. My black polka dot fabric arrived this morning and I washed it right away so I could cut into it this afternoon.
omg Chiara I am so glad you recommended the Riley Blake the difference in quality to my fabric land polkadots was amazing.
It took FOREVER to cut out both dresses. I did watch 2 movies as well. The panels are ready for appliques.

I might start sewing it tomorrow, will depend on if I work, have V or if I go visit puppies tomorrow morning with my parents. That takes a couple hours so....

I kinda hope V is sick tomorrow. I hate to see her sick, but.... If she is and I`m not working I can decide if I want to offer to go pick her up and bring her to my house (I need to get stuff done) so I will get paid for some hours or if I leave her with her mom or dad staying home with her so I have a total day off. Believe it or not tough decision! It`s a 30 min drive between our houses.

Odds are that she will be going to school I bet. I wish her school had a 24 hour fever free rule but they don`t or if they do her mom doesn`t follow it. There are times she goes when really she should be home (not often ) but this is one of those times.

Hello everyone! I have been quietly reading these threads for...a year?! And just now finally decided to take the jump off and dust off the ol' machine and make something. Here's the funny part: it's not even Disney themed! We're headed to that other park in Orlando...so this is a Funktional Threads "Rachel" inspired by Minion Mayhem. We're having character breakfast there so....
Thank you to everyone on this thread for their beautiful work. I have drooled over them for so long.
I hope this picture works! Here goes nothing. Don't look too closely either! Lol.

Love this!!! Do you have a serger? Or did you use a sewing machine? Curious about the fabric used and the seams. I have this pattern, but I am afraid to try it yet. Any pointers would be great. And glad you jumped in!


Nannye...wow. You have some patience! I can't even get my DDs dresses made, let alone make one for someone so picky for only $30. She has no idea how lucky she is!!!! And I can't wait to see them!
