I am feeling really good about myself tonight. A few days back I was bouncing ideas at [ profile] heileen (who has been absolutely fabulous to discuss ideas and fabrics, is the best possible trooper for improbable fittings and lets me shoot off all my stress at her, seriously, she rocks) and laid out a plan for the few kid-free days I get during the vacations. And for once in my creative life, I am actually on track ! I just finished machine-stitching the binding to the bottom of the stays (in (almost) one pass no pinnning involved. I AM getting better at this !). They need grommets (ordered and waiting for me to pick them up tomorrow or on Friday) and the binding sewn by hand to the inside of the stays at the bottom. The top is done, and the straps, too.
I promised you pictures earlier :
This is the oen that shows best how the fabrics changes with the light, also some of the glittering effect of the glod threads is lost in it.

In other happy things, I have

Pictures ! )

Since I'm on track with my program, and I even started patching the hole Heimlich made in his silk velvet cape (that he needs for the runway... well, he'll be a patched prince), I am going to enjoy the evenign and relax, catch up on some Project Runway and sew down some stays binding.

I'm looking for musical themes for the runway-show - we're going one them per dress/character to keep things fun (main focus we've been booked for = entertaining). I think I'm going to go with something from Lully for my Milady. The general swashbuckling/adventure movie music is either too general, or too short. Current main option is this :

Not much else to report, except those two pictures taken from the parking lot of the supermarket the other day. I live in a beautiful place.
