Hello, where have I been? Haven't rolled off the face of the earth or anything...I've been collecting my thoughts for a couple of (brace yourselves) Paid Things. One of them is a bonnet for [livejournal.com profile] blackcat452, the other is for an historic site not too far from me. I'm sure they won't mind if I blog about it, but I'm waiting for an ok before I do.

Other than that, my primary sewing-related activity for the week was to drop my iron on its head and kill it. Oopsie. Good thing A/ it was old, and B/ we've got another one.

Today I did have some sewing time for me, though, and I decided it might be a good idea to sort out a new dress for Fort Fred this year, if I want one (of course I do). I started a new outfit last year for Ft Fred, but didn't get too far before I realized I wasn't able to go. So, may as well keep going on that, right? After all, it's striped!

All I did tonight was pleat up the petticoat and sew it to the waistband, but that means I've now got a petticoat, so not too bad.

The bodice pieces are already cut out and the backs are sewn together, but I need to recut the fronts because the stripes don't match up with the stripes on the side piece. Derp. Uhh, maybe I'll do that tomorrow. Cutting doesn't sound like a brilliant idea at this time of night.
