It has been a crazy few weeks for me. I have a cough (congested throat that may be a sinus infection) that I've had flair up for over a week. I hope it will go away in a bit.
I've been really lethargic this month. Not because of my throat, but mostly because of motivation. I just haven't found it. I'm forcing myself to get motivated but as you all know, that can be a challenge.
One thing I felt I had to knock out was the clutter on my kitchen table. My apartment has been a bit raggedy lately as you can see from the image above.
In cleaning off my table I found some stamps I forgot I had. Now I need to get a frame for them.
I'm still sewing for Playclothes and had some very cute samples to repair and mend. The above 30s silk dress needed a placket. I made a period correct bias tape snap fastener placed for the dress.
The blouse above is a rayon sequin top with a side bow. I had to mend some of the sequin with a pouch of vintage sequin.
The next two are skirt details that I plan on using in the future. The above is a 70s skirt with a super cute double pleat. The below is an amazing 40s skirt with a running pocket treatment across the front. I am totally going to make a skirt like this.
The last one was a cut two piece dress that I think was later altered. It had one sleeve that had ripped off its cute black cuff (as pictured), so I had to remove the remaining cuff to make it match.
The beauty of the top is the cute huge bow that I tacked back into place. I love that.
One last thing I got from Playclothes was this 5 yards of lightly waxed cotton. It's spectacular. I can't wait to sew with it.
Whew. That's about it. Did some laundry. Washed my dresses.
Saw my dream car, an 80s BMW.
And took this silly selfie.
Have a great day!
