Scrappy aqua bow ties
It's a good thing I got these done yesterday. Becca and I went out shopping today. I have discovered that letting her and I loose in a Fabricland, looking for patterns and fabric for making clothes is very dangerous. There was so much there that we both liked, and some of it was even the same thing. But, we exercised a lot of restraint, and came home with fabric for a top and a skirt for Becca, and a top for me. All of it was much reduced. I've got her top basted together, and she just tried it on for fit, and it worked, so I can now go and finish off the seams, and get it finished. It's been a long time since I've done any garment sewing. I think the last of it I did was the bridesmaids dresses for her wedding. The funny thing about all this was that I decided, only a couple of months ago, that I probably wouldn't be doing any more garment sewing, so I got rid of my dress maker form...... oops. We'd been spending a lot of time, since we moved here, moving it from one place to another, without being able to find someplace for this red thing on its stand to go, so it finally went. Oh well....
