Miss Mitzie on the podium!

24 Mar

OK, it is the coffee table, but she is pleased with herself anyway.

After the initial trim. I sit on my yoga bolster and spin her around.

Bolster’s eye view.

High tech measuring device.

An hour or so of trimming.  The dress is basic measure and cut, but the underskirts are more like a hair cut.  Trim, look, fluff it up, trim again.  Even out the rough spots with the serger.

Then an hour or so at the serger doing a “shell” hem on 6, count ‘em –  SIX – layers!

Then as much yoga as I can fit in between sewing, blogging and dance practice to try to loosen up tight shoulders from so long at the machine.
