So here we go for day two. One tool that I think is useful to have is a 96 inch tape measure. 60 inches just doesn't always cut it. Tape measures like this aren't too expensive from either Amazon, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby.
I know my blogging presence has been less that optimal of late, but I think that is the way it might be for awhile. At some point, I will relate why, but now is not the time. But let's not get all gloomy!
I am back with a real post, to let you know what the status of my Civil War Dress is!
I know it's not really the twelve days of Christmas yet, but I though it would be fun to share over the next twelve days some ideas for a seamstress' Christmas list.
My highlight for today would be to gift a subscription to Creative Bug. Creative Bug is a subscription for art and craft classes. Instead of buying classes, you can watch as many as you want during your subscription period, plus a class of your choice to keep for every month's subscription. The classes don't seem to be quite as detailed as Craftsy classes, but this may be just the thing for you. Craftsy classes are my favorite, but there is no way at this time to gift a class or to give a gift certificate.
Just a quick reminder that Sew Characteristically You's Christmas sale started today! Everything in the store is 20% off through December 2nd.
Just here for a quick announcement that my Etsy store Sew Characteristically You will be having a Black Friday Christmas sale beginning November 25th through December 2nd. Everything in the store will be 20% off.
You can find my shop through the link in this post, the menu button at the top of the page, and the widget on the side bar.
Miriam's family and mine have been trying for awhile to get together and have dinner. That finally worked out, and Miriam suggested I could bring my dress along and we might get a chance to get some work done. Miriam got the front of the lining and the bodice sewn together. I can boast a little more progress than I made the last time we worked on this.
I have a great admiration for the talent exhibited by the entertainment industry of the 1940's, a talent which I frankly don't see today. Maybe I am not tuned in enough to what is going on, or just belong in the 1940's. :)
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
