I haven't abandoned you! I've been sewing like mad this last month or so, but between teaching and my coursework and working on a novel (eek) I haven't had time to blog. I especially haven't had time to do photo shoots--unless you'd all like to see poorly lit flash photos of me with dirty hair against the backdrop of my messy, messy apartment. Maybe you would. I shouldn't judge.
Anyway! I'd like to get the camera out this week and snap some photos of my recent projects, which include:
- That apron for Dear Partner that I mentioned like two months ago and just finished recently even though it's a three-hour project at best. I am forgiven, though--she loves it and wears it all the time to wash dishes in.
- A flannel dressing gown! It's brilliant! I like to swirl around in it like Sherlock in this video:
but without the gun obviously. It's like--think these lapels with this button waist style and these voluminous sleeves. You'll love it, I promise.
- And lastly, a full wool flannel skirt that I'm stalled on. I had originally planned it with a skinny waistband, but wool flannel is bulky and every time I try it on I look-- waistless. So maybe a wider contour waistband would work better? Or I could just slap a wide belt on that shit and call it a day. That's honestly sounding more and more appealing.
Of course, I've got more projects in the works, because I don't have enough to do in my life. I'm planning a wiggle dress in this wool suiting I got in a small blue plaid, and then there's a bolero with the same wool flannel from the skirt lined in cream polka-dot cotton, and another dress/slip/nightgown in bleached muslin, and a hat with earflaps for Dear Partner... and so it continues.
Stay classy, y'all.
