Projects I need to finish in the next week:
1. Coat muslin, fit, rip apart and decide how much fabric I need to buy
2. Black wool pencil skirt, waiting on lining shipment from Vogue fabrics
3. Skirt with inverted pleats made out of red and beige quilters cotton
4. Finish re-fashioning those vintage dresses. I started the flowered one, but between the needle jamming the fabric into the feed dogs and making the elastic violently tight on the one sleeve I finished, I lost my mojo...
Plus I want to think ahead to Halloween. Last year, school had me so stressed out I was grinding my teeth at night and I couldn't sew any costumes. I need to think of something awesome. T-Rex is going to be Napoleon Bonaparte, and I am thinking something like Vivian Von Dimples' costume, it's pretty stupendous. Like a beer garden!
Any great ideas for a Halloween costume? I will draft it myself, so I don't need a pattern...
