I am not sewing today. Well, maybe not. I do owe some orders at the company. Hello-o-o-o-o-o to reality!!!
But it was so nice not to wake up with a mental list of things to do on the dress.
Things I didn’t do and it didn’t matter:
I didn’t hem the sleeves, left the selvedge edge.
I didn’t tack down the facings, they didn’t seem to need it afterall
I didn’t sew in the shoulder pads, I used double sided tape.
I used the double sided tape to secure the top of the sweetheart neckline to the bod, and felt so much more secure!
All these fine tunings of the dressmakers art really would have been wasted on this crowd afterall. I saw boned bodices held tighter with safety pins, gowns from the early 80’s, fluffy frou-frou baby blue bridesmaid dresses, totally wrinkle-y bias seams, a couple of crotch shots from a young dancer doing high kicks with a cut away hemline….
Oh my! and these were “nice” people.
But today: devotion to home and animals and catching up with TheSewingDivas! What thoughtful, intelligent posts have been happening over there while I’ve been covered up in silks….
