Pad stitching and cartridge pleating
Today will consist of lots of time pad stitching interlining to a wool bodice then hand sewing in the linen lining. The burgundy and gold nobles gown will have its skirt cartridge pleated today as well. Photos to be uploaded later in the evening.
I’ve been following your posts on the dressdiaries livejournal community. Then I started watching your livejournal and now I’m watching this space like a hawk for new posts.
Your work is so inspiring and I absolutely love waiting to see what you will post next. Thank you so much for posting so many in progress shots, so much detail about your daily work. I honestly am checking daily for updates and am constantly delighted to see the little details. I think I like the progress pictures and discussion better because mostly we get finished pieces in the various lj communities. I’m much more interested in the “how it’s done” than in the “I did it!” posts.
Okay… back to lurking. Thanks!
The “how it is done” is really the super fun part for me of course :) I sometimes have to stop and say “don’t photograph work today it takes away from from producing part” but it is sharing that is really keeping me going.
Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. :) Cheers! Sandra. R.
