So much for this sewing blog (no wonder I only have 5 followers). I did do some last minute adjustments to my vintage dirndl for Gemutlichkeit, but that’s not very exciting so I didn’t take any photos. I got it from eBay just in time for the festival. The skirt was so tight that I had to let it out. I’ve never let anything out before, only taken things in (yeah, I’ve reached that part of my life - getting wider). The material is wool with a satin liner. Thankfully it was handmade, so taking the stitches out was super easy. Also, whoever made it was VERY generous with their seam allowance, so I was able to let it out two full inches. I have photos of me wearing it; however they were taking at about 1:00 a.m. and let’s just say I was fully loaded at the time.
We’ve got loads of yard work to do this weekend and a house that looks like a bomb went off inside. Next weekend I have two craft fairs back to back, so I don’t see any sewing time in the near future for me L.
Here is what inspires me today
