I can breathe and sleep in. Or at least I coudl sleep in, bu tmy body insists on waking up as early as on the runway days becaus eI have so many idea running through my head. Photoshoots, new dresses... I'll talk more about it later, fr now, here is just a sample of the first pictures I recieved :

Grands méchants de contes de fées, mai 2016

I am over the moon with the pictures I got this far. I still have to go through the ones the Home Geek took on Sunday, and I don't have the official pictures or video yet. It was AWESOME !

Why on Earth did I think assembling Effie would be easy ? This dress is going to be the death of me and I'm not even sure I like it. It'd better look good on the model. And fit, because I don't have much wiggle room.

My dummy is sooo not the right shape for this dress, too.

Of course, I am now behind on my schedule. This wasn't helped by the fact that I actually slept in yesterday (yay ! catching up on sleep ! finally !), and that we had to run some errands, like replacing our old mattress. New fancy mattress was found and ordered, so that's cool. But I didn't get to actually work before 4PM, which is not so good.

- I posted pictures and blogged about Toad's dress, here. I have to take pictures of the dress in action. for now I only have a quick one from my mobile :
She likes weird poses ^^

- I apparently fell harder than I thought at the ice rink last week, but in the end the x-ray shows no crack. Which is good, but I still was somewhat crippled for most of the week. The Home Geek took the kids there today, but without me.

- I finally caught up on the recipe I wanted to try out for January's Meats and Potatoes Challenge form the HFF. And it is delicious. I need to photograph and post it.

- Ursula's corset has the inner and outer layers assembled. I just ordered a black busk, lacing and lacing tips. I is nicely waiting on the dummy for now, the satin looks really yummy. I will probably make myself another corset out of the remnant, bwahahah !

- Speaking of which, I have booked a place at a corsetry course for July. I am super-excited ! We're also starting to look at our vacation plans and they are going to be really really cool. Lots of time by the sea with the kids, lots of time with friends. And then we're seeing into dropping them at the grandparents' for two weeks or more.

- Right now, the thing on the worktable is Lady T's petticoat. Lots of bouffant synthetic horsehair !

- otal side note : my old sneakers gave up the soul this week -well... they still work, but only in dry weather, due to holes in the sole). So I treated myself to new ones, from the same brand. Eco-conscious, bio, sneakers that last ten years. Yes please. They are fabulous and I wear them aroudn the house for now, just because I love them. The laces are not turquoise like in the picture, though, just electric blue.

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.

And there were a few nights with only 4 or 5 hours the week before. Please dear brain, I'd really love for you to shut down some during nighttime, thanks.

Not much sewing over the week-end. On saturday we paved the area under the clothesline that turned to dirt every summer. Yesterday was the first meeting for the runway show I'm planning with two colleagues next May. I'm starting to get a grasp of the workload ahead and... well, it's a lot. Five big wedding dreses, two children's outfits. Plus coordinating, models (mostly done), photographers (mostly done too, jsut a few places to ask and clarify), MUAs and hairdressers, among other things.

I tried to go to sleep after that, but my head wa sprobably much too excited so I spent most of the night working on my website. I wanted to launch the new version in early septembre, I think it's going to take just a little longer, but it's still comign along rather nicely. The About page is done, the landing page almost done, the sidebar too. Next up is a better portfolio.
