I know I haven’t blogged in quite a while. I have been crafting a bit, just not taking the time to blog. Rick and I went to Disneyland for Mickey’s Halloween Party last week. We had a great time. I made the costumes. I want to get some better close up photos to show more detail. The ones we took were blurry, so need to be redone. I wanted to post today, so the details will have to wait. My bodice is from a 1990’s cocktail ensemble, the skirt is from a simplicity pattern. I used the sleeve pattern as the cape. I had fun figuring out how to sew with lace and organza, the inexpensive stuff on sale for Halloween at JoAnn’s. Rick’s vest is cut from a Vogue pattern and made in Cotton Twill. Not the best choice, worsted wool would have been easier to sew. He wanted something cooler than wool so I gave it a try.
I am doing much better managing my time and health. This change is taking more time than I imagined.
