My, my, my!! Spreading it thin is how I have been living lately.
I'm almost finished with the five "new" dresses for the fashion show. Tomorrow is the garment review. We have to bring in the garments, shoes, and other accessories. If someone is modeling the garment other than the sewist, they must come too. The session includes putting on the outfit and taking a picture. So that means my sister and daughter will also come.
I had planned to make a jacket as well, but I ordered the fabric too late. I'm still waiting for it. I hope it comes today.
My sister said, "You should stop posting about the progress of the fashion show garments. Everyone will see your entries." So I haven't posted any updates. I have finished the Burda dress and two LBD's. The red and black dress for DD is almost done. The black and purple mylar dot dress is nearly done as well.
In the midst of the fashion show garments, I have managed to get three client projects. The first is a dress for Ms. Paulette Bell; the muslin is done and fitted, but I can't think about it until I get the show clothes done. Also I have two vests for another client. On top of that, I need to call a few people who want clergy robes. ..., Oh yeah, my cousin asked me to make her a coat, like the black simplicity coat I made winter 2009.
Last week I started feeling a little selfish because I haven't sewn anything for myself. Spring is coming and I still have several things cut for winter that I don't want to leave undone. But spring is coming! I picked up my Cadena magazine last week. It's loaded with inspiration. I already know that I will make something coral, mint green, and yellow.
So this post only has one photo. The back of the Burda dress.
