I will need to seriously prewash the rest of this birsdeye cotton like six times, because it is shrinking like a motherfucker and all the seams are pulling out WTFWTFWTF.
This is me, following up on this post.
A little background: mr. biscuit went back to college in the fall, and is graduating in May. For some reason my grandma decided that when she gets him a present (a couple of nice new suits, woo!), she’s also going to get me a present. My family is big on giving everybody presents. She asked me if I could use a serger, or if I would prefer something else? I thought of a dress-maker’s dummy, but I couldn’t decide which to get. So I waffle, and I thought, and I posed the question to my readers.
You all had some excellent advice and suggestions (particular the Uniquely You dress forms, which I am GOING to get my hands on one of these days), and I thank you.
In my wisdom I have decided to ignore all of it, though, because what I really need are boots. Really good boots that will keep my feet dry, look sassy, and last a good portion of the rest of my life. Boots like that run about what sergers cost. So I’m going to ask my grandma for boots.
EDIT: I’m looking at getting me a pair of Son of Sandlar, the four-button style. Probably in black, ideally with rose-shaped buttons. But honestly, I’ll just go in their booth at Scarborough, find something that isn’t completely offensive to me, and go with that. That’s usually how I roll. :D
After several months of sewing, I finished most of Esperanza’s garb on Friday.
