Dressing Movie monsters pt 2: The Wolfman Coat

Good morning lovely people.


Oh the coat, oh the coat! So much to show and explain and still simple and classic. All I can say is that I'm glad the coat was not fitted in any way. Despite my efforts in proper fit, I felt I did give a bit in my quality control because it was a 'costume' garment. I mean, I get it. Not everything needs to be at real person wearable quality, but I have standards, dammit, and I'm gonna keep them as hight as I can.

Dressing Movie monsters pt 1: The Wolfman Coat

Hello lovely people.


This past weekend was a busy one as far as sewing. I got a rush job from the company I do sewing for, for a wool coat for a Wolfman statue. Cool! You all know how much I like a challenge. I do. Nothing makes me try harder than a difficult project and a deadline, but this project was a doozie.

Simplicity 3701, take three

Hello lovely people.


As I wait for fabric to arrive for another freelance project, I've dived in and made progress on my Simplicity dresses. Well, one of them anyway.

Dressing Movie Monsters

Hello lovely people. 


I hope your week is going well. Mine is a slow slog of writing, drawing and sewing. I'm at various stages of either so it all feels as if it's taking forever to finish anything, and that makes everything seem so far away. As I continue on, I realized I didn't show you all the images of the movie monster wardrobes I've been working on.

Okay...lets move onto blouses.

Hello lovely people.


I'm off my game. I don't know what it is, if its stress or not, but my sewing is not at my usual standards.
Damn dresses.

Simplicity 3701, Take Two

Good morning lovely people.

Where am I gonna sit?
I decided to get off my arse and take another crack at this Simplicity pattern. I know a lot of people find it hard to rework a failed attempt. I'm totally one of them, but I really like this pattern and seeing as how my mock up fit so well, I decided after a few alterations I'm good to go.

Simplicity 3701 set back


Good morning lovely people.
I spent yesterday straightening up and mending a couple of things. 
Brian ripped my shirred pillowcase so I patched it up.

Flea Market Find: I bought luggage!

Hello lovely people!

I call this one, 'The Thinker'.
Yesterday on a whim and very early in the morning after 5 hours of beer drinking, I went to the the Pasadena Flea Market with some friends. It's a very large flea market that takes place once a month at the city college. They take over two parking lots and two levels of a parking garage. It's filled with all sorts of stuff from records to toys to vintage stuff to housewares. You name it, and its most likely there.
