I work full time as a chemist. I've been crocheting on the side -- which has to be cut dramatically with my increasingly troubling tendinitis and carpal tunnel. I have teens and a husband; all of whom I actually like spending time with ;-)
Yesterday, with all of the things on our agenda, I was away from home from 7 a.m. until about 9 p.m. This is typical for us and so exhausting. But I had the mojo! Something fierce. I wanted to sew. I thought, I can sew up - or at least get the body done - S2406; the Cynthia Rowley dress.
I may never sew with charmeuse again in my life. Maybe I was tired or something but I ended up wadding the dress up and throwing it on the floor. I'm assuming things were slipping around during cutting (I used stabilizer!) because it was so ill fitting that I couldn't believe it!
I like that dress! I want to recut it in a more stable fabric - maybe a linen blend or cotton or sateen or SOMETHING.
I was disappointed and felt like I wasted that hour of sewing time :)
Today we have to go see a couple more places and probably won't be home until around 6:30, but I'm hoping to get a couple hours of sewing in. Maybe I should finish my peplum and skirt.
I just realized it's May 1 and I can cut fabric for both the Accessory Challenge Contest and the Natural Fibers contest on PR!
YAY!!! I just got really happy!
I should make S2406 out of cotton so I can enter it. I'm making NL6035 pants out of a chocolate wool crepe. And for the accessory challenge, I'm making NL 6025, view B in rayon challis.
Everything should be made of rayon challis.
