sewing done: hand-stitched waistband action! zipper pinned in place! i am a machine, y’all!
on my dress form: the FQ challenge has reclaimed some of my mental attention (and has now been postponed until august). a lady-mary-inspired drape drape.
in the cut pile: chanel-inspired sewaholic saltspring; jean-ius copied jeans; drapey trousers.
things i ordered (like i didn’t have enough to do): republique du chiffon pantalon jacques and robe georgina.
this week in stupid injuries: dropped an entire (assembled) jaffa block set (full of sewing supplies) on my foot. #winning
things planted: none – alas. but i did pick up some small starts of beloved summer vegetables: mortgage lifter tomatoes, bourginon cucumbers, 5 kinds of melon.
things i am working on: colette’s wardrobe architect; re-examining and re-styling old makes; separates and trousers; season 1 of the secret circle which is…weird. i can see why it got cancelled.
also: me-made-everyday as i toil to make my photographs better.
things i am obsessed with right now:
- oona’s bombshell
- netties in lace and sheer
- a megan nielson cascade skirt in a stash valentino panel i have from mood
- plans for a BHL victoria blazer for fall
