Anybody want to know what 2 1/2 straight months of pattern making looks like?
So anyway, my camo project went out the door today. I meant to count the pattern pieces, but forgot. Or well, just got busy washing puke out of bed sheets last night. I do remember that we got the UNLINED jacket down from 32 pieces to 26 pieces. As soon as her website is up, I’ll post a link.
I feel like throwing a party. Because, really, I need tequilla & it’s just not cool to go on a tequilla bash on your own. You should come over. I’ve got puking kids to keep us company.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled program. This month you’ll meet:
*Lauren: my oh-so-precious little earth-mama
*Carrie: on the lace hunt, we’ll find it Carrie, hang in there!
*Cheryl: mother of the bride who hired me even though I think she had to move a basket of Kevin’s dirty underwear off the sink in the bathroom during initial consult (note to self, um…clean up a little better next time you know a client’s coming over!)
*Iris: wedding with a latin flair
*Rachael: the artist & my personal favorite dress design this spring
I think I’ll also post some tutorials of a sort on pattern pratices & tools. I’m teaching at Textile-O-Phile this month & keep getting questions about why I do certain things & where I get all my equipment/tools, etc. Sometimes I really feel like I’ve got one foot in both worlds. (home sewing/design). This past weekend I went on a sewing retreat with the Denver PACC chapter & met some really inspiring women. I’ll post more on that later.
So stay tooned, folks!
