Oh I have a headache! no I am not done.

Oh wow I have a headache the final fitting was last night, did it fit? Yes it did but, there is always a but. But it does not look right once she has on her dress.


Here is the deal most wedding dress have no sleeves and this one is not exception to that. It is a beautiful dress.



As you can see but she wants sleeves. At the bridal store they told her that she could wear a bolaro style jacket.




But did not want all the lace all over it she just wanted it to be sheer and she wanted to wear it under the dress so that it would look like it was part of the dress.

This should have been easy to do, and now that I think about it I should have taken the jacket right out of my mind but did not. So since October 20 I have been working on a jacket that she could wear under the dress and of course it work perfectly when she did not have the dress on. Once she had the dress on it bunched up and puckered all over the place and did not look flattering in the least.

Last night the night for brain storming because no matter what I it would not work.

I am typing this at work because my computer has no internet at this time. I brought my camera but left the USB cord so I cannot download pictures. In time I will.

So I gave her back her dress and I am making a trip to the fabric store again to buy new fabric just so I can make the lingere type thing that in the style of a shirt she can wear under the dress. The sleeves will the the only thing visible and it will be long enought for her to tuck it into her slip, spanx so that it stays down and snug but still enable her to move without fear of ripping the sheer fabric.

When did this idea come to me. When I was ranting last night about how this is not worth it and how I should have never taken this stupid job and I have to come up with something because her wedding is friday morning at 8:00.

the Hubby says" why not just make a nightgown, yea a sheer nightgown it would be v cut deep in the front so it would not show through dress and you can still make the sleeves fit her and she will be happy. After the wedding all she has to do it take of her dress and hey it on for the two of them. "

I looked at him and he mistook my look for anger and quickly apologized for acting so silly but it was exactly what I needed to hear.

With the jacket it was always coming open and did not have the length to tuck it in. Everytime she moved it pull out and did not stay in place and that is what the problem is more than anything else any way.

So tonight I will be up all night creating this and putting the finishing touches on it and then I can get it to her Wednesday and be done for sure! Which will be ideal! Keep your fingers crossed!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
