I apologize for neglecting to post any new entries lately, but it hasn’t been for lack of accomplishments. I’ve been at the sewing machine, at reenactments, refereeing my children and remodeling a bedroom. Oh, and preparing for a huge craft fair that’s in exactly a month and I’m not quite ready yet!
I’m working hard to finish Taylor P.’s day dress, ballgown, unders, and haversack in time for Resaca. Some days it seems like I can’t get anything done at all, then other days I am sewing like a madwoman and my family knows I am IN THE ZONE! :)
As simple as it may seem to take her measurements, cut the pattern, and sew it together, it’s not always a piece of cake. With her in north GA and me in West GA, meeting up for fittings was proving to be inconvenient, time consuming, and expensive.
This is Her Ladyship, the Duchess of Fitsright.
I was picking up some supplies at Joann’s when I found the dress-forms on sale for $100.00 off! So I brought Her Ladyship home and already I can see a difference in getting the fabric to do what I want it to do and KNOWING, rather than guessing, that it’s going to fit Taylor correctly.
So. Much. Better!
