During my usual online fabric window-shopping, I've stumbled upon at least three of my fabrics on various sites going for more than twice what I paid. Tsk tsk. I won't name names. People have to make a living somehow.
I'd post photos but my camera is packed away and my phone won't do the fabric justice. It's moving time for the next couple of weeks. Not a fan of moving, but the move means I'll finally get some sewing space. At the moment, I occupy the dining table. It's messy in this little corner, let me tell you.
I seriously tried to start working on a dress despite the fact that I have to start moving stuff on Saturday. I couldn't help myself. I have a giant stack of fabric just begging to made into something beautiful. I bought the Angie dress pattern by Sis Boom. Really cute and really simple, my kind of pattern:
I've already made my muslin of the bodice. It fits with just a few tweaks. Nothing major. I can see myself modifying this bodice and using it again. It's the first bodice that has fit in a while without pissing me off to no end (I'm looking at you Darling Ranges and Colette Peony).
Speaking of Darling Ranges and Colette Peony, I've given up on both of these patterns. I can't make the huge f-ing dart on the Darling Ranges bodice work. With the Peony, I discovered that my shoulders are a size 16 while the rest of me hovers around 14 and I still have to do a FBA to make it work. It's too much work. Too many muslins. I quit for now.
I did make the Colette Hazel dress without a hitch. Again, once I find my camera, I'll post a picture.
That's it for now. I need to sleep. Did I mention that I'm also working over-time? Sigh.
