There is an English Country Dance coming up this Saturday! YAY!
Now, I am actually in a little bit of a pickle here. See, I like to wear something different to every dance, even if it is just wearing a different top with the skirt I have worn for 3 dances in a row. But, this month, I really wanted to wear something a little bit more exciting! Jillian over at Refashionista.net got me inspired to try my own refashion!
Now, I know how to sew, both by hand and with a machine, but usually it is just too much work to get the machine out, locate a place to put it that is roomy, sturdy and near a power outlet, find a bobbin and spool of the same color thread(or worse, fill a bobbin!), adjust the tension, pin all my hems(stab myself a few times) and then finally get to sewing my seams. And then put it away. Oh, and usually find out I missed a seam somewhere or decide to add something else AFTER putting it away.
I’m patient, just not that patient most of the time. Need both a deadline and a nice/easy design to get the motivation worked up to get it all set to go. 🙂
And I guess I have that this time!
So, here are the two pieces I am starting with:
Now, the chopping, pinning, and sewing starts! I should have this done by tonight, and I will let you guys know how it turns out!
