I'm sorry for my lack of interesting posts! I have been a busy bee lately with Holiday Decorating, travelling home for an early Christmas with my family, and working at a fabric store (fun!). The house is all decorated for Christmas now and it's time to begin sewing once more! At the top of the list is a White Sheer Silk Organza Dress to coordinate with the White Silk Regency Pelisse (that I still need to photograph to show you!). I'm still determining the pattern that I will use. It's looking like I may have to draft my own. But I'm wishing that there was an easier way out. (P.S. The above picture is from another Regency dress project, not the current one.)
I know it's not just me. How many of you love to collect patterns because it makes it look as if sewing is so easy? With their beautiful glossy pictures on the front it seems as if all you have to do is select the fabric and then sit down for a few minutes and "whala" you have an amazing finished garment. But for me, at least, sewing is the boring, mundane, dull and tedious part that I dislike! The research, designing, and patterning stage is my favorite. I'm still crossing my fingers and hoping to someday develop a passion for the sewing part!
