You kinda have to

Watch the film Toe to Toe

I saw it on Sundance
And I thought at first it would be some teeny bopper film

It was more than that and kind of amazing when you watch through it

I enjoyed the story and the acting
I just really like this one

More to do

Ok when I tried it on I realized:

The arms need a little work

Hand sewing does not take that long

I need to put an inner lining with elastic

I need elastic across the top and possibly across the top of the arms
It's def a top not a dress

I need the deep blue belt sewn on to the stomach part.
Possibly with a cinch detail

Will keep you updated

Its like this

An alien winter

That is all

Blue shift


This may be a little bit more difficult
I started off thinking tube
Then I decided I wanted sleeves
I love sleeves

But I never sewed sleeves

And I never really want to construct sleeves in a traditional way

So I got this picture in my head because of the material
And I drew it
Then I cut it

Now I have to sew it (by hand)
Will let you know how it turns out

I am also doing a belt but not a braided belt like I did before with the other dress

I had to

I was so into that Romantic Nationalism piece I had to get in on it

Like so

And like so

Uh huh

Sometimes you can get off the computer and take a break to read

Turn actual pages

Sit in a corner


Remember when people used to play?
Yeh- I remember :)

But at night

In the gloaming


Then Later...

There needs to be a party

Cuz that's just how it is...

With the Jump Off
Queremos Paz :)


No matter what you are in the middle of doing

When the rain falls it's worth getting window shots


Outdoor shots of the scenery

This is what happens

This is what happens when Spielberg directs and Jackson produces a movie

Tin Tin

In 3D

Looks kinda cool

Well it's not done yet but I had a couple of fittings
The first one showed that I needed to cut more

Across the top
It was too tight in the arm hole and across the front

So I cut it

Then I tried it again

It fit much better

I definitely like it and can't wait to add a cute belt or something

By Hand

Well I need another shift dress and I have the material, so that's what I decided to do

I don't use paper patterns anymore because it's a little too complicated for me

So I chose a dress that I like, that fits great

I use this as my pattern

Cut round the self edge


Then start to sew
I am doing the sewing by hand.

I have the tiny straight edge hand held machine but I don't trust it not to cause puckering

I will let you know how it turns out :)

Miss the character

Thanks goodness for youtube

I also miss Maia Campbell and wish someone would help her


So a really late call from T woke me up
And after I hung up I couldn't fall asleep
So I am up watching every movie online that stars Zoe Saldana that I haven't seen

She is really a great and underrated actress.
One of my favorites


I am trying a new head wrap

I tried it out on a skype meeting with my friend R who liked it and so I decided this was a good one
Well I liked it before he did and that confirmed to me that it was worth keeping

I really dig it

Plus it keeps my head cool while it's all wrapped up
