No, making garb is not such a big deal. Making garb that is several sizes smaller than what my patterns currently are (weight loss, hello!), and attempting to fit myself, is a real pain in the butt. And contrary to popular belief, it is not just a matter of taking it in. When you work out in addition to losing weight, your body shape changes and you need to adjust.
But at least I have new fencing armor, and I am happy as a clam.
Adventures in fitting myself include a pink pair of venetians (with pockets!) that ended up being too small for me (hey, I am small, but not *that* small!), and that will be delivered to liveinlovemunky who I am sure will look terrific in them.
But now I have another pair in a lovely blue/green linen with pewter buttons made by the awesome ccunning. And if this sounds like a shameless endorsement, it is. I love those buttons. For more of his work, click here
Now, I need to make me some more fencing shirts, and I'd love to make some petticoat bodies. The ones I had do not fit me anymore, and are currently in the hands of the lovely Alina S. (Do we see a theme here?) But I have high hopes of achieving happy petticoats in the near future.
Here's to hope.
Last but not least, I would like to post a survey, since I have not posted one since forever. Being the competition show nut that I am, and knowing that there are some of you out there who share my vice, I would like to know if anyone is currently following some of my favorite shows. So here it is, and have fun!
Which shows are you currently following?
The Next Food Network Star
Top Shot (History Channel. Like Top Chef, but with guns.)
I am waiting for the next edition of Ru Paul's Drag race
When is the next season of Project Runway?
I prefer Top Chef Masters, but it's not on yet.
Say Yes to the Dress. Oh, wait! That's not a competition!
Whatever happened to LA Ink? Are they still alive?
