I feel like I have been on a sewing marathon all week..wait, I HAVE been on a sewing marathon all week, and I'm "sew" darn tired!!
I love to sew, really I do, and normally sewing is a stress-reliever for me. When I feel rushed or have to meet a deadline, then sewing is no longer fun..it just makes me tense! Every evening I kinda looked like the tired seamstress in that portrait up there - LOL!
I think I've spent more hours sewing each day this week than doing anything else, but there is reward for all the hard work and long hours! Seeing a project transform from an idea, to a sketch on a piece of paper to finished garments is a very rewarding experience.
The garments I have created this week are original designs, in which I had to draft patterns for. I got some inspiration for the lace insertion & embroidery design from Old Fashioned Baby "Baby Rose" , but I changed it up a bit to make it my own. There is literally a TON of feather-stitching on my garments, which has taken more hours to complete than I want to add up!
I will be sharing more pictures soon, but here's a little peek at what has totally consumed me all week:
