Well I got depressingly little sewing done this weekend. Having to stop every couple of hours to gear up and shovel snow really breaks up your day. Plus afterwards you are tired and sore.
Still I have made progress. Patterning and such turned out to be much more difficult than I thought. I was going to make life easy and use some of my existing patterns, tweaking here and there. Thanks to Weight Watchers I've lost weight this month (*happy dance*) so the pattern I was going to use was way too big. After trying on various things in my costume closet to see what fits me the one thing that was perfect I apparently didn't make a finial master pattern of! *bangs head on desk* You'd think after all these years I'd learn!!
Anyway. I figured it out, spent hours getting it all the fit and take best advantage of the strips, cut everything out and the bodice is currently half done. I'm going to be a very bad girl, ignore real life today and sew like there is no tomorrow and see if I can't get the bulk of it finished before I go to bed. I really should be doing other things today but I don't want to be sewing the night before my party either. That is a sure way to have a completely stressed out hostess!
