Supporting My Habit

In the last two months, I have spent a lot of my sewing time making things for other people. Some of the items were for the two stores in town that I supply and others were just for individuals that wanted something specific. My natural tendency is to be selfish with my sewing time, but it's good to have a bit of money coming in to keep the sewing room stocked. Not much to say about all the things, but I did want to record them here...

Vogue 8828 for a client (Really? Can I have a "client?" It sounds a bit more pretentious than I'm comfortable with, but I should probably own it and add a bit of professionalism to my work. And it's much more succinct than "a nice woman I know that wants me to sew things for her." I like succinct. But you'd never guess that from this long, rambling parenthetical comment).

It's a very poor fit on my dress form, but was so perfect on my...client. Color, style, fit, everything - perfect. I also made her a skirt, but don't have any photos. I copied a skirt that she already owned and really liked.

And since all this was completed, there has been selfish sewing! Yay!

    What a nice arrangement of sewing there! I am trying to spend the next week sewing un-selfishly. We'll see!
