Then there is also this box stuffed full of another dress waiting to be made.
What's that? You want to see that reproduction 1880's cotton up close? I suppose I can oblige.
I've also got a pile of scraps left from a dress I made on Friday. The dress will be modeled in two weeks for my sewing instructor at school.
Next week I'm going with the aforementioned lady to be an extra in the Jesse James movie this dress was made for. We're doing a bank robbery scene and so we decided to spruce up our 1880's outfits a bit. Her blue dress gets a new bodice with velvet collar and white glass buttons.
I'm working on trimming my hat with some paper flowers.
Here is some of what they've filmed so far. "Jesse," the guy reading the newspaper, who gets shot, is a friend of mine so it will be fun working with him next week.
This break has been good for my fingers, but now I must go finish that pleating.
