Sewing Marathon before getting back to real life...

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Well, my two days off flew by, as usual. Back to work tomorrow. I am really hoping my New Years resolution comes to fruition quickly. I'm trying to decide what is worse... being terribly underemployed, or being unemployed... Every month, I cringe with regret when I pay my student loans. Surely I deserve more than to sweep the floor and scrub the toilet! Oh... I miss my old job....

So, I worked my butt off the last two days and sewed 5 (well 6, including the bodysuit) new items for my Etsy Shop.

I've been renewing my interest in Victorian Fashion lately... unearthing some old Victorian magazines that I had been collecting. This Chemise and Pantie set remind me of a delicate, Victorian woman's under-things. Frothy with lace, crisp white.

They photographed nicely on my vintage, turn of the century dress form. I have to thank Dan for that one.

Lately, I've had an obsession with sewing contrast bibs onto everything. I suppose I just like any excuse to add a little ruffle and some lace, so I added one to a pair of panties... the fabric I used is so soft and worn-feeling, it feels vintage.

I made myself 2 of these thongs about a month ago, and I have to say they are the most comfortable pair of underwear I own. The fabric is is light and airy, the elastic perfectly stretchy, it feels like you are wearing nothing at all. I can't stand man-made fibers or too-tight clothing!

I am actually going to keep the sample for this black set for myself to wear under my work uniform. I like to wear something ultra-feminine under my hideous man shirt to remind myself that, yes, indeed I am a woman!

While I was photographing my new items, I flipped through my 1876 Munsey's Magazine and saw this interesting advertisement for Burnett's Cocaine For the Hair! Apparently it will cure you of your dandruff...
Dan started back to school on Monday. It's a 2 hour drive there and then back again. I feel like I have hardly seen him. It's only Wednesday and I already miss him tons... Luckily the course is only 2 months, and when he finishes he will have his full Mechanics License! I am already so proud and excited for him!

I am looking forward to the Weekend already, even though mine doesn't start until Saturday Evening. Our plans are to stay in and play some video games and follow up on our Oscar Movie Marathon!


  1. Sarah-Elaine, every time you post a new piece of lingerie it takes my breath away! Your designs are sensuous, flirty and romantic all rolled into one! I know you are unhappy with your job at the moment, but I can't imagine why your Etsy store wouldn't be a huge success... just keep plugging away at it ;o)
