What a week! I knew it was going to be a busy one, but I'm not sure I was really prepared for exactly how busy. You see, I had two deadlines on Monday: samples due for a magazine article I'm writing on party skirts and all the prep work completed for the filming of my "Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress" class.
Here's a sneak peek of a skirt inside. I've become totally obsessed with finishing my seams by turning and stitching them.
I started filming for Craftsy.com Sunday evening, but we did the majority of the work Monday through Wednesday. We filmed at The Sewing Studio, where I teach. The space was perfect, but unfortunately the a/c hadn't been installed yet! I'd have my makeup done every morning at 8:00 and it would be melted off within an hour. I don't think I've ever sweated so much in my life.
Cutting some beautiful teal shantung:
The crew was super fun and awesome, and even helped me hand-baste some underlining! How's that for impressive?
We put the fan on between takes, which resulted in this "Pantene Pro-V" picture.
Sal for coffee and cupcakes!
How's everything with you, dear readers?
