Just wanted to let you guys know that, yes I am alive.  I haven't been sewing much because I lost my mojo a little.  My husband's grandmother passed away at the beginning of this month and we have all been a little sad here.  It wasn't unexpected, but it's sad none the less. 

Anyways, I picked myself up the other day and I made a muslin for the Peony and I was surprised that I got the bodice to fit so quickly.  The back bodice only took one muslin fitting to get it right; the front bodice only took two muslin fittings.  I am glad I did that second fitting though because one of the changes I made did something weird and I had to make a two inch (!!) FBA on my bodice!  It was the first time I ever made a FBA, so that was an interesting learning experience.  I have a normal sized bust, so I never have to make a FBA.

My final Peony is so close to being finished.  I really like how it's turning out and I can't wait to show you guys!  As long as nothing going horribly awry, expect to see pictures this weekend.  Next up, the halloween costume for the little one.  She chose a very sophisticated costume this year, so I think everyone will be surprised...

Anyways, the demon-living-in-the-other-room-of-our-two-bedroom-apartment and I are going for a bike ride.  I hear demons like parks this time of year.

**sorry for a picture-less post!**

  1. oh, I know how that feels! I lost my sewing mojo in October too. I had found my three quarters of the way through a big, big project and I just didn't want to do it anymore....Ugh. Anyway, I finished it and I am restricting myself to small projects for a while.
