Today I did break out of my funk and worked on the dress that consumed my weekend. Who knew that such a small dress could turn out to be such a pain in my .. well you know what word goes here. I set up my machine, managed to get the lap sewn in. I was prepared to get the sleeves set in and then do all of the gathering. And then it happened. My daughter Ashley is working on a peplum blouse that she needs on Saturday. She has made two muslin trials but needed help with armholes. What can you do, I put my project aside.
I love getting packages delivered. First I got a BONFIT Elastic guide set. Has anyone used one of these? The product promises to stretch the elastic as you sew it into your garment. I hope to give this kit a practice run this weekend and will let you know if it is worth the $10 I paid for it.
The other package yielded more books, adding to my ever growing library collection. This came as a lot of four books, three of them from the Singer Sewing Reference Library that was popular in the 1980’s.
The other book is Better Homes and Gardens Professional Sewing Tips, this library collection were popular in the 1960’s. I hope to eventually complete both sets through time. Hey,, don’t judge.. everyone needs a goal in life..
Long day makes for a short post!
See everyone tomorrow and as always
