Bodice, part 2.

Posted at 09 Sep 2008 02:18:45 PM

Hooray! I got more fusible interfacing today. Maybe I can actually finish this bodice in something like a couple of weeks instead of half a year? From the research I did (after the fact, of course) I believe that I sewed one of the pieces of rigiline in 'backwards' - that is, curving away from the body instead of toward it. However, since it's such a tight-fitting garment anyway I'm not particularly worried about it.

Am starting to think that I'm going to end up buying a fishtail skirt, just so I can take it apart and get a pattern that way. It's irritating, honestly - how hard would it be to make a real pattern for this?

Still annoyed at my hours at work, and no sign of them changing soon even just for raid nights. Over-privileged, if this is the worst thing to happen to me, blah blah yadda yadda. Still annoyed.

I picked up a 5.3cu ft. chest freezer this weekend, and cleaned out the upstairs freezer as soon as it'd been cooling for 24 hours on the dot. Hooray! Now I'm contemplating the freezer specials at John's Butcher Shoppee (I swear, that's spelled right) as they look like decent deals. One could wish they included some lamb, even just chops or stew meat, but maybe I can wrangle some sort of swap.
