Or is that just me?
But let me tell you I totally would have taken Fairy Godmother’s help with her wand. Just sayin’.
Most of the items we worked on were fabric sewing and machine embroidery projects, I was really excited to see this leather bodice come together. I might have to find an excuse to try leather working...
There were fittings and finishings.
Elizabethan noble costume! So Fancy!
And a lot of make from scratch beginnings.
Not to mention a lot of sharing sewing tips, tricks, ideas, and supplies. I used real pattern drafting paper to make this jester hat pattern while I was there instead of newspaper for the first time ever! It is lovely to work with!

I was there more to help other folks if they needed it and camaraderie. After spending months learning how to quilt to make the fabric for my new jester bodice I hit a stopping point waiting for a delivery of coresetry supplies. I needed to step away from the sewing studio a bit after a nerve wrecking evening finally cutting the bodice pieces from the fabric panels I spent months making.
This is before I pressed it. My focus is the diamonds over the banding being off in places. I don't think it will as noticeable once I sew it into a garment. Most of the oops parts are going to fall under my arm pit.
What road trip wouldn't be complete without a junk food treat? On the way home, I swung by The Dorothy Lane Market to buy their magical and dedicate Killer Brownies for my husband because I couldn't believe he never tasted one. I can deal with not being able to eat most dairy filled treats with the exception of Killer Brownies. I miss you KBs I truly do.
Photographic evidence that I am the best wife ever.
