I have been out of commission for quite some time. A lot has happened on the home front and everything is almost back to normal. School's out and the DH has been home so, I've been tied up and my sewing room off limits! (Not to mention my totally wrecked mojo!)
Anywhoooo. . .
I had some fun events to attend which means - outfits to sew (which helped my mojo) now I'm about ready to blog away. I have enough blogging material for at least 5 posts!!! (YAY!) My son is at a sleepover so I'm "gettin it in" before he I have to pick him up.
I have finally taken the personal oath. No more custom projects for others!! I have one outfit to do for my stepdaughter and then - I'M DONE!!! I still will do a "simple" alteration or two and I have a grandson on the way but, the custom customer thing is so OVER! When your mojo is dead and folks are calling about garments they don't want to pay top dollar for, need I say more. I'm so sick of hearing "I want something SIMPLE" or "Now, I don't have a lot of money but, can you make this fab creation I have in my head without a pattern?" (I could go on for hours!) It's nice people think I'm talented and I "look" rich but -
|I'm so DONE! Ya Feel me?!
|I joined the fabrics/pinked edges before cutting. Added faux pocket flaps, a tie waistband and it's fully lined.
|Here's the compare.
The pink fabric was gifted - the red fabric $2.50 yd. I used about a yard so the final cost including zipper is about $4!!!
I'm so pleased with my project! It's been posted but now finally blogged!
Oh and the shooooze - my son missed my feet! (LOL)
