Or, rather, what I’ve been up to, since where I’ve been (the studio and the garden) hasn’t really changed.
I’ve been sewing up a few shirts for a friend’s order (that blue jersey is one of my FAVORITE fabrics of all-time. I made myself a shirt with it, and it’s just sooooooo comfy and soft!):
Turning a big ol’ stack:
Into a bunch of these:
And sewing up a pair of shorts (WHAAAAT? I never sew shorts!):
The shirts and the shorts are being made for a soon (I hope) shoot I have in the works with one of my amazingly talented model-friends. Just a low-key shoot, probably along the lakefront. I’m in love with the shirts, and want to have a whole slew of them up in the shops soon–but they just look so lackluster on the dress forms! They change dramatically when on a human form. Also–a great excuse to get out of the studio and go have some FUN!
I have a number of shoots in the works right now–can’t wait to get going on them all!
Happy Monday–I know it’s not the norm to enjoy a Monday, but I always kind of do (don’t smack me). It always feels a little like a fresh start, and I have an extra bounce in my step as I go about planning the week.
