Ugh has it seriously been almost a month? Guess so!
I had a couple weeks where I just felt bleh, and didn't feel like doing much of anything. The weather was crappy and that affects my mood. I finally started to get back in the mood a week or so ago. I started working on a Monster High commission. I had been asked to do a plaid button down shirt. I printed a pattern off-line, but it just didn't work the way I wanted it to, so I ended up purchasing a vintage Barbie and Ken pattern. I figured since I've successfully taken Barbie patterns and scaled them down I should be able to do the same for Ken.
For the most part it looks good. I snapped these pics and loaded them for my customer. Then went "Crap!"
I managed to sew the collar on crooked. The right side of the collar
sits WAY lower than the left. Well my customer loved it, except for
Nope not the wonky collar, she'd like short sleeves. Oops, guess I
should have double checked on that tidbit first! So my wonky collar is
no longer an issue.
So tomorrow I will start on version, um 8 million point 2, this time with short sleeves and making SURE to get the collar lined up properly!
She has even asked me to make a couple open and with a tank or t-shirt underneath! Sweet!
Still on my To-Do list is a Parisian picnic and some Copper-style outfits. Copper is a BBC America police drama set in 1864 New York. I have yet to actually catch the show, but I am excited about the challenge the outfits will present. I will be working on 2 suits for a pair of Create a Monster guys. Should be loads of fun! :-)
I also have some Barbie outfits to work on soon as well. Hopefully I will be back soon with a few more updates!
