Fashion ala Gordon Gartrelle

This week, I decided to freestyle an outfit. I sewed wit no pattern. At first, it looked great. However, when it came to doing the sleeves, I channeled Denise Huxtable's version of a Gordon Gartrelle shirt,LOL. So, corrections, corrections, corrections,LOL.

Working, Working, Working, Working

Aaaaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! It was a long day at work. However, sewing soothes the weary soul of the savage beast roused by a day of aggravation. I am working on two projects. I am still working on my friend's doll. I've began a new project as well. I am making another dress for myself. The bodice of my dress will be an original design by me!

Woooo! Back Again!

I've been trying to register for my last class in graduate school and it has been unbelievable. There's a woman in the registrar's office at this institution who seems to have me mistaken with someone who she has a vendetta against. If I were not trying to complete one course - HIST 600 THESIS - then graduate, I would not go back to that university. I've neglected Wrapped in Taffeta and La Fitnista while trying to get registered for classes and pay my fees.

Doll Patterns

I sketched a couple of characters for a friend of mine for Christmas present 2009. For Christmas present 2010, I am making one into a doll. I know it's after Christmas, but I had to get the material together. I've done that. Now, I have been creating the the pattern pieces and cutting out the fabric accordingly. So far, I have the front and back torso, legs and thighs sewn together. Now, I have to make the pattern pieces for the shoulders, arms, hands, head, and hair.
