Day 2 was spent mostly lounging around. Striped pants were cut out and sewn up. After a final fitting, Taylor didn't like them. They fit funny (she always wears jeans) and the legs were too wide. They made her feel like a clown.
So Day 2 evening was spent lovingly with the seam ripper. I took everything apart except for the back center seam. Brought back memories of Aunt Sharon telling me if it isn't right, I need to take it apart and redo it. I really miss my Aunt Sharon.
Day 3 brought out a different pattern and I re-cut the pants and sewed them up to a perfect fit. Elliot and Maemae were here during the sewing so it took quite a while to get them sewn. But I got it done. Just in time for the hat model to try them on. She is so funny! I'm glad there is more than enough fabric left over to make her a pair or 2.
After they left, I got busy and sewed up Taylor's peasant top. I think it looks very cute with the striped pants. And she must too because once she put them on for her model shots, she hasn't taken them off.
I think before bed tonight, I am going to sew up a quilt block and the very last seam on the backing for the deer quilt. I think...or go in the hot tub...or both.
Edit: Quilt block is done, backing is done, hot tub is done and now I am done! This has been an awesome day!
