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!


  1. I'd like one owl pillow, and one tuxedo bib, please! :)

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

  2. I always love to see what you make. You do such a lovely job!

  3. I love all of the items that you make ~ for yourself or a client.

  4. oh that dress for your client :) is SO pretty! Nice work!
