Last week I bought ten meters of gingham for doing up the prototype of my sister’s wedding dress. Yesterday I had a long think about the skirt, reviewed my sketches and notes, made some more sketches, did a bit of measurement math and started cutting. This afternoon, I have a red checked wedding skirt. I also have a tripod-mounted sister torso.
I am enjoying this sewing so far because I don’t have to do any finishing or detail work - no zippers, no hems, just pins and magic marker. Phyllis will receive the pieces basted together so that she can undo them and use them as a pattern. For me, this is heaven! Of course that makes it a bit harder for Phyllis, but she has a lot of experience sewing clothing and I am sure she can work it out perfectly.Posted by kuri at April 22, 2008 05:52 PM
