Most of my dressmaking clients are reenactors or fair-goers, and I spend much of my sewing time making their wonderful costumes. It is a rare occasion for me when I get an opportunity to make modern clothing. Like this week, I had the pleasure of making a cocktail dress for a client from the Cleveland area. What fun! I loved her color choices - white and Tiffany blue - very classic, very Springtime!
With modern clothing comes modern fabrics, meaning synthetics, and sometimes I have to remind myself they need a bit of special handling. In this case, the lovely nylon mesh overly was dotted with sequin ovals, and you know what that means...
Removal, removal, removal around all the seams. I had to be ever so careful because there isn't any forgiveness - not on nylon mesh - to hide a faux pas if I get a little too snippy!
Happy May, happy Mother's Day weekend, and blessings and happy sewing!
