Sewing In the Rain...

Not literally of course...yesterday the rain came in earnest and today looks to be more of the same. I don't mind rain too much on my days off, especially when I have projects to work on in the studio. I finished a time sensitive project yesterday while watching old movies (Turner & Hooch, followed by An Affair to Remember) I always get inspired by Deborah Kerr's wardrobe when I watch that movie. Isn't this dress just the greatest?
I adore how the the drapey chiffon cowl in the back weaves throught the front of the bodice. Every time I watch this movie I swear I'm going to copy that. Must be old age setting in because in a week I'll probably forget about it and be dazzled the next time I watch the movie! Today should be more of the same in the studio, with the exception of hitting the treadmill first. That is, once I get this lovey dovey cat off my lap. The Chief is very selective with her affections. You take it on her terms, not your own! If I don't do the exercise part first, I get too engaged in other things and it's easy to say to Hell with it! A few errands down town and the rest of the day is technically mine! Happy Monday!

It's raining here today. I'm not feeling well, so I'm hunkered down on the couch wish I felt up to sewing. g

Rain here, too. I feel like I've moved to Seattle. No sewing for me between 6PM Sunday and 6PM Friday, or no one would ever eat, go to school or work. I get obsessive.

And I've been watching that new show Pan Am, and thinking about how to incorporate some of those lines into my clothes. Hubby chuckles at me.

I know Marjie...those fashions are from my prime time...God help us when the 80's roll around again! :)

It rained all day Saturday and I was so cozy in my sewing room. Hope you had a good day!
