It’s a sad, sad day. I have to go back to school. Ugh! And you know what the worst part is? My Vintage Vogue suit isn’t finished yet! Double ugh!
I’ve still got to piece the lining of the jacket together and sew it in. I may be able to finish it, since my first (and only!) class today isn’t until late in the afternoon. I’ll try. I’ve got so many exciting things to share with you about the process of making this jacket. It has really advanced my “couture” sewing skills! :)
I won’t be able to post quite as much as I have, and my sewing future always looks bleak when the semester starts, but hopefully I’ll have some wonderful artwork to share with you all! Let me just say how much I enjoy reading all of your blogs and how happy I am to have made so many kind, new friends.
I leave you with this thrilling photo of the eternally dreamy Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and the always lovely Ginger Rogers. It’s from the film Having Wonderful Time in which Ginger has a short holiday at a mountain resort, meets and falls in love with Doug and then has to go home after having a fight with him. (Don’t worry, it turns out wonderfully in the end!) I have a soft spot in my heart for this sweet summertime classic. Seeing this photo makes me want to sit right down and watch it.
