Friday Afternoon Sewing

IMGP4272 IMGP4276

Today I had an impromptu lunch with a friend and then started tackling another draft of my black dress design.  The bodice was looking very promising last night in class, but today it's looking ripply and ill-fitted.  Bleargh!  But I am getting lots of experience sewing princess seams.  I've found out that there's a buttload of clipping and easing involved.  Now, if only they would behave the way I wanted them to...

On the plus side, however, I now have empirical evidence that sewing in my studio is not only possible, but kind of a breeze - space to put sewing machine!  Flat surface for laying out pattern pieces and ironing!  Bad '90s television in the background!  What more could a girl ask for?
