Okay, so it is Tuesday instead of Monday. My excuses for being late are that I was gone part of the weekend, Sunday I was playing with my new smart phone, and Monday and today I had to complete the project to even have something to post about.
I haven't been completely lazy lately, although I didn't manage to get a post out Monday. I will use the fact that is a national holiday as my excuse.
I have finally gotten around to putting together a bodice moulage and without too much tears and anguish over fitting problems.
I have been working on my personal pattern slopers or pattern blocks starting with the bodice moulage. I want my clothes to fit well and I think the best way to do that is with custom patterns.
I have managed to clear out some of the projects that have been piled high, though in the process they seemed to multiply like rabbits. ('Cause in the middle I was given some more alteration projects.)
It is about time! I am ready to begin filling in a list of pattern testers for my skirt pattern. It will likely be a few weeks before I am ready with the pattern, instructions, and fabric amounts, but I want to get an idea of who might be interested.
Oh, dear, all is quiet on the blogging front lately. My apologies. I hope to be back up and predictable now. This coming right after I was hoping to go to three posts a week. :)
This skirt has a unique place in my sewing repertoire as the first real sewing pattern I have created myself. At some point in the future, the pattern will be available for sale in my Etsy shop, but there is still a lot of work yet to be done to accomplish that goal.
Leimomi of The Dreamstress, one of my favorite sewing/historical fashion blogs, recently made a call for pattern testers for her pattern line, Scroop Patterns. I jumped at the chance to join the rolls of potential pattern testers.
I finally got around to making a pair of culottes from this vintage Hollywood pattern. I have been wanting to do this all summer, and it at least made it as a summer project.
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.
