Coming Out to Breathe

Busy, busy, busy. No LJ for me. (Pout.)

Anywhoo, and apropos of nothing, here is a very cool exhibit at the Met: Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy

I don't know about you, but I think that this is trés cool.

And, is it me or the instructions on the Tudor Tailor are a bit confusing? Fortunately, I have been sewing long enough that I can fiddle with them, but they are not very detailed. Then again, it is hard to be that detailed when you are trying to include as much information as you can in the minimum amount of space.

I still think the Tudor Tailor rocks, but the instructions take a little bit of getting used to.

So what am I making? A simple shirt for ballistabob, with the nifty embroidered cuffs and neckband that I finished a little while ago. Like I said, not something really complicated, but the gussets can always be tricky and I am used to the ones in Mistress Grace Gamble's pattern, which are a bit different from these ones.

I have to say, the shirt is coming along nicely. I am looking forward to the finished product. And since I am not making anything fitted for myself until I reach my target weight, I might as well amuse myself making underpinnings.

You can never have too many shirts. (Especially the embroidered kind.)

Or chemises.

Or ruffs.

Or . . .

Never mind.

And now, I go home.

Yay home!
