Megan at Best of Fates just inspired me to make another piece of clothing.  I don't know what yet, but her bridesmaid's dress was beautiful.  The last time I sewed an item of clothing, it was for my Halloween costume in 2005. 

Back in those days, I was on the social committee for the Inter-Professional Council.  Which means I helped throw all the big parties for those of us who had spent way too much time in school.  That picture, other than making me look like a midget (and I was wearing HIGH heels), is with a doctor (our president) and a dentist (our secretary or treasurer?  Can't remember).  Ah memories.  This party was interesting because even though we had reserved hundreds of kegs of beer (no, not an exaggeration), we had run out and the bar was trying to charge the party-goers who had paid a cover charge for unlimited drinks.  Then my ex got on stage and was dancing inappropriately, and I was assigned to retrieve him.  It was an...interesting night.

Once upon a time, I was a prolific seamstress and created costumes for theater productions.  That was a long time ago.  Loved it, though.

Anyway, back to the sewing.  I think Halloween this year would be a good goal.  There will be a new outfit completed and worn to the embarrassment of all around me.       


  1. I would love to be able to sew. I'm simply not a crafty gal. Believe me, I've tried my hand at many craft or creativity needed projects. It's never pretty. You did a great job on yours. Any idea what you want to make for this year?

  2. I feel so honored - especially because you're clearly a far, far superior seamstress than I!

    I can't wait to see what you come up with, but I'm sure it'll be fabulous!

  3. I'm going to a costume wedding. So, I think I want to be the Bluebird of Happiness... I just have no clue how I'm going to do it!

  4. Very cool! The last thing I sewed was a pair of Barbie dresses.
