Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

IMG_2852Breaking out the Ol’ “Sew Retro” Craftsy vintage style sarong dress class and project. It’s been a while- I’m not even sure it still fits. It’s been on stand-by forever because I haven’t bought the supplies like the spiral steel boning it needs. I was going to put a black skirt on this, but I think I’m going to finish it as a bustier, and make the dress again from scratch in a nice shantung like the blue one she makes in the class. The instructor is Gretchen Hirsch, and let me just say she’s pretty wonderful! I love her little side note on how her husband cracks up every time she mentions using “boning.” I can definitely see how a guy would find the humor in that. She’s young, funny, tatted up, and she’s the author of Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing. You can find her at http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/
