WOW what a ride that was, I spend most of December telling myself I am not stressed, then being totally exhausted by how stressed I am. Thankfully, I managed to de-stress with a Christmas dress on Christmas Eve, and got a fair few projects under my belt in the chaos of this month. All of which I will write about in due course, after I complete the seven drafts I have been meaning to add pictures to and publish over December to start the new year fresh…. whoops!
Vloggin has took a complete backseat, I just have not had the time to get sat down and talk sewing, although I absolutely love doing it. Hopefully this update can be a slight compromise of sorts.
At present I write from the in between, the part after Christmas day and the festivities where no one really knows what to do with ones self… until new year. I am using this time to catch up with some bits, have a sort out and set up some projects for January. This will also include a healthy eating and exercise plan for me and the partner. Festively plump is an understatement: the last time I felt this fat I was pregnant.
This also brings me to the next issues I am having in my little world of sewing. What size Dressmakers Dummy/mannequin to buy. My current body is bordering on a large, but a stone or so down and I could easily fit into a medium…. for such an investment I am really worried about getting it wrong. Plus this blog is full of my many failings of listening to inches and getting it SO wrong. I kind of think a large will be to big and I am better off with a medium anyway, especially with the type of things i make… any imput is welcome.
I am about to get on with a Sleeping beauty dress… basically a selfless sew that is kinda selfish as I have a 70s wedding dress pattern I have been dying to use!
Hope you are all having a lovely time, roll on new year.
