I’ve gotten absolutely NO sewing done this weekend, and I have multiple projects that NEED to be done. Two of them need to be completed within the next 12 days, and I haven’t even started on them!
But I do have a valid excuse. After 2 years of putting it off, I FINALLY got my wisdom teeth extracted, just last Friday. All four of them, no less. So here I am on day 5 of no wisdom teeth, and while it’s better than each previous day, I’m still not up to doing anything other than lying in bed. I really hope that my constant resting is speeding up the healing process, because I’m just itching to get back to sewing!
In just a day or so, I won’t have to worry about the risk of dry sockets, which is nice. I’m getting tired of eating just soup, though! D:
The only exciting thing to happen to me sewing-wise, lately, is that I finally manned-up and tackled the 1880s bodice I’ve been struggling with lately. (As in, 6 months of lately. ;_;)
I’m still kind of wondering about fit, though. I’ve got the fit pretty well under control, and it looks great in most places, but I’m a little unhappy with it around the front of the armhole. I’ve been looking at old photographs, and some of Merja’s dresses, and it looks like that’s just how it is. I supposed you cannot have an absolutely perfect fit in a woven fabric unless you plan on not moving in it, ever. (I reference Merja’s stuff because she’s, like, my historical fashion role model. Everything she makes looks absolutely perfect and like she would fit right in to the time period she’s taking from. And her fit is universally praised as perfect, so I definitely look at her stuff when I try to judge the fit of my own!)
IT’S JUST SO HARD TO FIT YOUR OWN CLOTHES AND THEN TRY TO JUDGE IF YOU DID A GOOD JOB OR NOT
Sooooo that’s pretty much it! I’m going to try to sew more this year, though. I think I’ve finally got a good-fitting corset, now, and that’s pretty much all that was REALLY standing in my way of sewing. I’m really big on making sure I have the right undergarments :`)
