Mid-length Mermaid

Hi, All!

I hope that all is with you and yours. I have been working on the sewing school’s first fashion show and it is work! One of the three students has completed her garment for the show. The other two isn’t too far behind. I was recruiting models to model my designs… The group is growing fast so I will more than likely trim the models. Everyone can’t model, right? 🙂 I have located a venue! The Lord has made a way for me to get the hours needed for the set up, show and take down for a third of the cost. Yes!

So I made this skirt  for the show, but I wore it Sunday for church service.

I want it to dust the floor, so I will be making it again. I received so many “I want one” comments. Show me the money first! I mean no harm, but this is business. What I did here is moved my peplum to the hem. And it has a side zipper. I should have added at least 6-8 inches more on the pencil skirt for it to hit the floor. Next time…

What are you up to?

Until next time,
Happy Sewing!

Peplum Style

Hi, All!

It has been a few weeks of not posting (bad me), but I have been busy at the sewing machine. Most recently, I have been doing some free style sewing and self-drafting. The outfit that I absolutely love and was due to wear on last Sunday for church, had to be worn for my Grandma’s funeral. Yes, she will be missed. She never fully bounced back from the massive stroke. I wasn’t sure whether or not to rock it, but I know she would have wanted me to. So the hubby and I did our thing…

I made lapel flowers for him and myself, his vest and bowtie and my peplum skirt. It was actually a dress, but I wasn’t feeling the top.

I have been working with light weight leather again…

The Say Sew classes are shaping up nicely. The students are using their skills at home and I am so pleased to hear that they are doing so. It makes me feel good about teaching. I want to do something special for their last day. I am thinking of a handmade sewing box…… And we have t-shirts now…

Cool, right?

Well, until next time….

Happy Sewing,
