This title is not to suggest that in my lengthy posting absence that I have not been sewing.
Rather it is to say that I have been exploring lurking. You know reading blogs appreciating and even using the information while rarely leaving a comment trail.
Quite honestly it feels a bit like walking into someones home while they are out, raiding their fridge and sneaking out with out a "by your leave".
But enough about lurking (questions to follow) and on to sewing....Hooray!
This is a small sampling of what I have been up to of late, more to follow in the days ahead possibly.
"Your assignment should you choose to accept it"
Create a bra for an elderly client with sloping shoulders a 32" rib cage and a E cup.
I used the Pin-Up Girls Classic Bra Pattern with no alterations(seriously, just follow the directions) and achieved a perfect fit and the only comfortable bra she has ever had!!
and from the back.
I have have made 3 of these in total and still need to make another in black
1 in red and white gingham
( that is supposed to be a teaser of sorts)
For the same client a quilted vest from Moda charm packs. She used to do more sewing herself, but in her semi-retirement she has decided its more fun to be the designer.
She provides me with the idea, the fabrics, and some of the notions( buttons in this case) but leaves me lots of room to add my own touches.
What a great client!!
This close up shows some of my touches.
After sewing the charm squares together. I hand quilted them to a layer of cotton flannel using different colors of embroidery floss.
The breast pocket was an additional touch to help achieve two objectives.
1- Create a space to show off her hankie collection.
2- Balance out the bust by creating a focal point above it and drawing the eye back towards her lovely face.
Now back to the questions, because I really want to know:)
Do you like to lurk?
Do you prefer it?
Do you ever feel guilty for it?
Do you find commenting bothersome, required, pointless, or challenging?
