...and now the two pieces together...
I have some white t-shirt knit (somewhere *sigh*) that I want to pull out and use for another cowlneck top, as well as, the white top from Simplicity 2566. So the wardrobe will end up being 8 pieces instead of 7 and I'm fine with that. I think having two white tops will give it more versatility.
After these last two tops are completed, my daughter has agreed to come by and photograph the entire wardrobe, so I will have some decent pictures. We will also work with my tripod so that I can get acclimated to using it.
Regarding the tripod, thanks to everyone for the tips on how to make the tripod work. Schoomom, the tip about the tape is ingenious, and I will be using it. And I need to say a special thank you to SueC56, it was her initial encouragement that started me on the road to purchasing a tripod ~ so thank you! Finally BetsyV, as you can see Lulu is an amputee...she's hard working but she is legless!
There were a few questions on the last couple of posts:
bpatricia74 asked, "I'm actually looking for a clothes rack for my sewing room. Do you have any suggestions?"
Sorry but I don't have a clothes rack in my sewing room so I have no suggestions.
Farhana asked, "How many hours do your really spend per item or outfit?"
I don't time myself. I kinda head downstairs to the sewing cave and sew in spurts. Sometimes I sew for hours at a time and sometimes I kinda piddle along. Timing myself would definitely take the joy out of it. If I get the item completed by the end of the weekend, I'm happy.
Stash Empress - I bought the book for $72. It was over $94 when I put on my wishlist, so I was thrilled when I flipped into Amazon and saw it for $22 less.
Kuby asked, "If I always use Bemberg?"
Yes, unless I'm using a cotton or silk batiste. I love how Bemberg feels and wears in my clothing.
A Sewn Wardrobe asked, "What fabric I was going to use for my second Rachel Dress?"
It's a black 'n white herringbone with black lace appliques that I bought from the craft store that masquerades as a fabric store several years ago.
Oh and I have a horrid confession to make...I haven't seen Project Runway in years or any of the Project Runway All-Stars episodes. I know, horrid, right! *LOL*
...as always, more later!
