It was a while ago now, the 14th of may to be exact we had a runway show in school at the “open classrooms night”, my mother was kind enough to take pictures of the whole ting.
It was a nice evening and a lot of people came and visited, they also gave out scholarships and I was one of the three people that got one.
You can look at all the pictures at my picture diary (the language is Swedish but one can always just look at the pictures)
So, I am not the one for showing off my body at the meat market also known as the beach. But I am the one for swimming and I have since I was a kid lived in the water during the summer season. These things does not mix well when the only thing one can find in the stores will show off everything that you do not wish to show of.
We had a guest teacher in school that taught us how to sew bras, so I took the opportunity to use this bra sewing day to make something for the beach. As I am a dress girl I decided to make a “swim dress” a bathing suit with a dress over it, all in lycra. As I have a rack of doom I needed a bra in the top and since I had no idea on how to sew bras this was the golden opportunity to combine it all.
This is how it turned out, I am really happy about it. It shows off all of the good stuff and hides all of the bad, a win win situation.
so the fabric is finished, It went smoothly weaving it but when i washed it it shrunk 15 cm (5,9 inches) so I I am a bit weary if it going to be enough for the dress I’m making out of it.
this is a sketch of the dress.
So, yes, long time no posts, but I have perhaps the “best” reason in the world fort this.
My father passed away the 10th of may.
We were not close, before he got a stroke and went into the hospital it was two years since I last saw him. I did not think that it would hit me so hard, but it did and I have been very tired and off since then. I have focused on getting my school finished and getting trough the days, and now I have started my summer job at a amusement park which is hard work and long days. But as I promised in my last post, I will get you cached up with my resent work, which is like nine or ten post, so I have some writing to do.
