Yes, it’s Wearable Arts Competition time again at the school my grand-daughters attend. They love it. Krystal had asked could they prepare their costumes at my place this weekend. I should have asked what she had in mind before I agreed. And who "they" were.
I learnt a few years ago when I made three identical flower girl dresses that I hate sewing more than one of the same thing. Krystal and her girlfriend arrived with a lovely design and they wanted two the same – two like that??
They picked the wrong grand-mother for that, I’m afraid.
After much discussion we decided on something a bit more like this:
If you ever want twelve years old to stand still, just pop something with lots of pins on their squirming bodies.
One top is more or less finished, the other will get done tomorrow. Ever tried sewing with black at night? I couldn’t do it even when I was young.
Unfortunately, I suspect what comes next is what they will wear on the bottom half.
Whatever it is, I’m sure they will have lots of fun making and adding the decorations for the “Music” theme.
I will post about the finished garments in a week or so, maybe sooner, we will see what tomorrow brings.
