progress!!

alright!!! found all my pattern pieces =D now because this is such a fitted top, i decided to make a muslin first, then the pattern. i've never done this before, but decided i should seeing as how i have to lengthen EVERYTHING i make both in the torso and in the finished length.




so yet again, another day where i was up until the birds started chirping, and finally crawled into bed when the sun was coming up lol. i can't help it, once i start on something i strive to finish it, exhaustion finally won and i caved in.
here's all the pieces for mom's purse, i decided to add an inside zippered pocket, and rather than having NO closure, i'm adding a zippered closure so mom doesn't have to worry about stuff falling out or people reaching in

ohhh my

ok call me crazy, we leave thursday for prince george, and i have the sudden crazy urge to make ANOTHER dress!! in fuchsia, a corset style top, with a cute little trim...hmmm, now if only i could find that pattern!
we finally got a working steam cleaner, so hopefully it won't be too much longer until i get my sewing room back in order =) work has been pretty busy, our order of TEN bridesmaid dresses came in, all which need to be fitted and made into halter dresses instead of strapless. woo hoo that means more money for this girl =D
well better go keep hunting for that pattern, it's not gonna find itself, is it?
