First Day Photo


sylvia weir first photo of the year

so what exactly am I doing with a dress form? Particularly since now my usual dress is sweatshirt/long sleeve t-shirt or short sleeve t-shirt and blue jeans depending upon the weather?

It seems that several months ago I signed up for a class with Joe V who dresses stars and starlets and offered a class on how to fit clothing at the Houston International Quilt Festival. I was encouraged by my four dearest friends to ‘go for it’ and so I did.

The box arrived several weeks ago and stood in my hallway glaring at me and daring me to open it. On New Year’s Day I opened that box and dove in. The directions must have been translated from Chinese or something as the grammar was a bit odd. My husband had to help me at one stage and here she is.

Now please be proud of me. I put my camera on the tripod and set it up to take timed photos.

What will be my first project? She needs to be padded (slightly) and then a cover made. And then, I have a huge basket of ‘fashion fabric’ to experiment with.

  1. I have a Craftsy class on fitting clothes waiting… and a couple of free motion quilting ones… so much to learn, so little time!
