Procrastination and such
Just so you all know why it’s been so doll-centric around here, I have been doing sewing-related activities. I finally sewed all the way through my cut project queue over the winter break from school, so then I started cutting the next batch of queued projects out. I hate cutting out new projects. And to make it worse, this time around I was going to have to cut out the wedding dress.
I procrastinate when I have a project like this to work on, especially if the fabric is super expensive. To make it worse I decided to start by cutting out the lining first and I learned that bemberg rayon is crazy slippery. So that made me even more scared to cut the silk.
But I finally did it today, with Spot’s help of course, and guess what! It wasn’t that bad, in fact it wasn’t all that slippery! I did buy brand new, nice scissors and used thin, sharp pins and cans of tuna as weights. Next up the sewing, eventually, but I’m really not as worried about sewing it all up because I did the muslin and know exactly how to do it all already.
