My life is a bit hectic this week.
I want to write a ‘proper’ post where I show you one of the many projects I am working on, or discourse on a considered intellectual topic, or teach some fabulously researched bit of textile history. But it isn’t going to happen.
Today I have a really exciting photoshoot featuring some of the dresses from the Grandeur to Frivolity talk.
I was up all last night checking seams that had come loose, refitting the 18th century man’s breeches, wishing I had time to make a whole new 18th century man’s waistcoat, assembling hair ribbons and makeup, making new engageates for the robe a la francaise, and doing other miscellaneous sewing.
I’ll spend most of today at the photoshoot, and then come home and try to get everything put away and tidied up in time for two client fittings. Then to finish a client dress by Sat, to (maybe!) finish my Luna moth by Sat, and to catch up on paperwork and other business stuff I’ve been neglecting.
And I have to do taxes. Blech.
So that’s life – fantastic to mundane and back again, all in one day.
