As a seamstress you can design and create all the wounderful costumes and gowns you like, but you are also obligated to do all those boring, but necessery, sewing nefties that ever so often needs to be done. Like changing zippers, heming pants, mending shirts and making curtains.
I must confess I hate doing this. It is so boring it almost kills me. And since I detest it so much, I procrastinate and stale until the piles are about to choke me. Then, and only then, I will get to it and finish them of.
This eastern have been such a time for me.
Instead of working on faboulus gowns I’ve been digging in my ever growing pile of “must fix” stuff. Most of them are not that interesting but, since it is UFO fortnight, I will show you some of the sewing I’ve been up to this holiday.
Then I started on some of the comisions I’ve taken on from collegues and friends.
I shortened a pair of pants.
And made a slim skirt a bit smaler at the wasit.
It needed to be shortened a bit. And as always with bridal gowns, the shortening was a bit more complex then just cuting and hemming. But after some initial insecurity I manadged to get it done. (And No, I will not show you any pictures of the gown itself (yet)).
I also got the chance to try on, and alter the Pink caraco jacket for my sister.
I’ve even got time to do some work on three up-coming historic hats, and finish and take nice pictures of my HSF14 UFO entry. (The pictures from the photoshoot will soon be posted).
Quite a productive weekend if I may say so myself.
Now, lets get on with the awsome gowns again…
