Some Sewing!

...Not done yet. But for Halloween...

I am making a red dress....

I found the shoes last night at Marshall's... Well I found A shoe. This lovely faux-snakeskin-5"ish metallic sandally heel. For the life of me, I couldn't find the other shoe... And of course, it was the only one.
Then, at closing time, I got a call that said they found the mate! So I have shoes. They are red with one of those awful stacked heel, so I will be sanding the bases down and painting them shiny fire engine red.
For 7 dollars and a bit of work, I have shoes. Can we say exciting?

I'm using the extra fabric from Sunset (there is about 3 yards) for the dress, and then I'm set once I find purple gloves.

I am also doing a bunch of sewing associated with Rosenrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. It's been fun to be back in the costume shop, and we have boys down there right now who are learning. It makes my heart happy!

And after Jessica Rabbit, there will be a little bit of craziness getting R&G up, and then onto my gold dress for sorority formal! I might be able to work a bit of everyday wear for the winter in as well, but I HAVE been buying things. It's putting my refashioning side to shame, but at the same time, there is much going on in my life. So I need the time.

Hope all is well! Sorry for long absences.
