Busy week!

I've got more clients this weekend than you've had hot soup.  But I don't want to leave you gasping and clutching at my hems, wailing about having nothing new to see here, so I'm going to point you to this fine lady:

Tempest (a/k/a Sarah)  is fast becoming a heroine to me. She's smart, funny, gorgeous -- and just look at her sewing!

Sometimes I get in a funk about my nonexistent waistline, especially after viewing blog after blog of shapely young girls who look perfect in everything. It's inspiring to see someone near my age, built like me, looking absolutely smashing in outfit after outfit that she's made herself.

Okay, I gotta get back to work. Go play!

  1. You're way too kind :) Thank you. Sometimes you just have to take a journey with sewing and clothes. Last year I tried making some styles I'd never have thought I'd like or suit.....all those "How to hide a bigger tummy" and "How to dress your age" articles dictating what we should hide away in with our non-existent waistlines and 'golden years' had convinced me in my 30s that I was on the scrapheap so I wore oversized boring stuff for years. Well, stuff that for a game of is too short, who knows what tomorrow brings so right now I'm going to make what I want, take risks and wear my 'sunday best' any day I want to. I've added your blog to my reader, I can see I'm going to enjoy your adventures too, especially as my eldest is clamouring for costumes of a more historical and steampunk variety this year.

    Thank you again :)
