My Sweet Baboo had some minor surgery today; nothing serious but it did result in me spending most all of the day lounging around waiting rooms and not working on any of my urgent, behind and/or overdue projects.
So, after I got him settled down for the evening with a dose of pain reliever, I finally headed into the makeshift cutting room and began the process of cutting out the prototype skirt.
little freebie ruler I won and...WOOT! that is one great little tool (I forsee much easier Burda Magazine pattern prep in my future). Then I trued up everything and cut out my new pattern.
Then I wrote 'ARCHIVE' on that pattern and traced another one, which I used to cut out 10 petals w/lining and 10 sets of nylon net underlining. I was stackin' and whackin' with a vengeance and managed to get the skirt cut out before midnight. Barely.
Now comes the real test...will it sew up to look like I hope it looks?
By Sunday night I should know the answer to that one....
