|Diva's Bathing Suit Dilemma|
Soooo first. . . .
I have - wait for it - finished the design on the bathing beauties. I'm so glad! I've been in such a rut lately and this design has come really hard this month. Still - I'm all happy with the finished results even if that last beauty was so finicky about what suit she was going to wear - Diva! I mean, seriously! First she tried out two perfectly good Liberty of London suits (Does she realize that that fabric is $32/yd these days?) Then, I gave her three different options to look at without actually trying them on. Finally I had to show her whose boss and picked out a print from the now defunct Rose & Hubble - I mean - its not a nudie beach, after all is it?! I'm thinking that this fabric worked because it had the proper scale of print. So now the suits have one large print, one small print and one medium.
Now I just have to put a million pins in it and sew it down with some nice invisible thread. I'm solidly in the "No Fuse" camp - not that there is anything wrong with Fussers - some of my best friends are fussers - giggle. And let me tell ya, when I'm getting stabbed for the millionth time with one of my sharp silk pins while sewing this baby down, I'll be wishing I had let Melody Johnson talk me right into fussing!
