I sit here and watch the birds tease my cat as she sits in the chair by the window and advises me of their presence. Can you find the birds?
This past week went by faster than I had anticipated, and my planning was a little fleeting at best. My intentions on Friday mornings are to lay out my plan for the following week. Last week, well, I wanted to do anything but sit at the desk any more than was absolutely necessary. Fortunately for y’all I knew some of what I wanted to post this week.
I have been working on a customers’ Historic Recreation shirt and dress. Here is the video from where I dyed the fabric to obtain the perfect color. (And even the swatches to get to the final). Kitters thought she was helping once or twice. Here are a few other photos.
I have been writing the transcript for the video that will post next Friday – patternmaking. And it will provide a sneak peek into the Fall/Winter 2021 collection that will be virtually showing in May.
Next Wednesday, February 24, I will be live on my YouTube channel for anyone with questions. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAJ5-WFNIL1vGqJKQELMN_Q If you won’t be able to attend, email your questions to Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org prior to Feb 24 and I will answer them live.
The renovations of the studio continue. I have to wait till its finished before I can add more photos.
This was the last week of the Introduction to Mantua-making: An 18th Century English Gown in Miniature by Burnley and Trowbridge https://burnleyandtrowbridge.com. There is much I have learned and hopefully have made a few friends.
I am looking forward for the weather to break. I need to get outside on the trail again. Here are a few photos from last year.
