adventures in costuming
back in the saddle again
I got back to work on the Poe last night. sadievale came over last night and we sewed together. I helped her get started on her riding habit (she's copying this lovely thing) in between finishing up the Poe bodice toiling. It was nice to have a costuming buddy to get me going and keep me laughing; I was really not in the mood to work last night.

I can't believe I have to have this dress finished in a few days, I'm so far behind and so not in the mood, but I don't have a back-up plan. I'm afraid to push myself too hard for fear of getting sick once again though. My immune system is so run down at the moment. Still I plow ahead, not knowing what else to do...

The real point of this post is to whine and say that I HATE sleeves. The first sleeve toile has been a disaster. Yes, I really hate sleeves. *sigh*

Oh and speaking of sadievale, she is off to the Jane Austen evening in LA this weekend, are any of my LJ peeps going this year too?

Yeah, I have a plan to get mine done in time but it's still hard to think about. I'm sure your dress will lovely when it gets done. (Heck, I'm sure everyone's will be prettier than mine at this point but that's beside the point...)

Sometimes, even if you feel like you don't want to sew, once you pick up the fabric and start sewing, you feel better.

Hope you feel better soon! Coldezze helps.

You have all my sympathies on the sleeves.

And don't worry, your dress will be finished in time and you'll look fabulous, as usual. ;-)

Thanks! If I do I'm sure it will be because of your bonnet... :>

I really want to go next year, S says it's great fun. There is another Austen ball in the LA area during the year. I'll have to ask her for the details on that for you...
