So I've been "commissioned" to start a new project, which is always exciting, though the reason for this specific commission is a sad one. My wifey has asked me to make her a black pillbox hat to wear for her grandmother's funeral. Her grandmother hasn't passed yet, but has been given only a few weeks. So tonight I'm making the buckram frame, and she'll have to send me the silk velvet she wants to cover it.
After I get the frame done, then I get to work on drafting sleeve patterns for The Boy's gambeson. He's specifically requested that I complete all the mock ups before moving onto the real fabrics because of how important fit is in this project. I can handle the request I suppose. So I'll have to pull out the drafting skillz.
My friend and her boy are hanging out with me and The Boy today, so she and I are working on sewing while The Boy is making lasagna.
Off to work...
