AUTUMN 2017 SEWING Goals
In no particular order:
... AND A CLIENT
This is a fun, if short-notice project... an Ahsoko Tano costume for a woman attending the Rose City Comic Con! It'll mean making a fitted mini-dress with cut-outs at back and bosom, a pair of gaiters, and (possibly, time permitting) fingerless gauntlet gloves. I'll wait until after my client wears it to post the making-of details, but for now, suffice to say I'm busy as a beaver working on this challenge.
I hesitate to put this on my to-do list, because I know it'll be a big project, and will stretch my skills, and I might not finish it this fall. But it is a dream project... check out this Vera Venus pattern for a 1940's style jacket. Now imagine it in a green brocade... a subtle one with a simple diagonal grid pattern. Right?! It needs to happen.
Now... off to work on my brother's shirts! I'm doing the two batiks at the same time.
Quilting, dressmaking, and history plied with the needle...
