It’s been a good week–still a little slow on the orders-front, but that’s normal for June. A few come in here and there, and so I get those done immediately, and then back to new items, new styles, new adventures.
A pair of ruffle leggings was made and shipped off to Canada:
A capelet found a new home:
A new style of dress was created (and I’m in LOVE)–it’s a lovely lightweight black gauze over a black cotton lining, and I CANNOT WAIT to get it onto a model for fit and better pictures:
Another stack of crop tops for the upcoming lakefront shoot:
The second of three shirts for a friend’s order:
A new tattered lace collar:
And a tattered fabric boa:
(also a couple of new shirts for myself snuck their way in)
As I sewed away, I listened to:
–“Doctor Sleep” by Stephen King–this is a follow-up to “The Shining”, one of my all-time favs of King’s. You find out what happened to Danny, and it’s a fabulous story. Lives up to the original, and satisfies all those “I wonder what happened to…” questions from the first. I really enjoyed it–having a good book on cd to listen to makes ALL the difference when sewing. Makes me more anxious to get back into the studio every morning!
–“Edwin of the Iron Shoes” by Marcia Muller–I had no idea that this book was from 1977, until the lead character put on a “tailored denim pantsuit” to go to an interview. That had me wondering, but what REALLY got me was when another character was described to be wearing a leisure suit. Good story, kept my interest. Not on the same level as “Doctor Sleep”, but interesting nonetheless.
