While the machine was embroidering, I did a quick dress hem commission, and assembled my fireworks skirt. So now that's waiting for embroidery. At some point, I may wind up switching which one is being embroidered, since a half-embroidered Rapunzel dress is still 100x more interesting than a black skirt with no embroidery!
Also, I really hope that once I add the embroidery and lights, the skirt starts to look less like a garbage bag. I think because it's woven with metallic threads on one grain, it's reflecting a lot like plastic right now.
Anyway, I should have some time for sewing on Friday afternoon, so I'm hoping to knock out more embroidery and do the sleeves on Ariel. I also have to find if I have the old Queen of Hearts dress, or if that's still at my parents house. I think they made me take everything that had been in my closet with me up here a few years ago, but I'm not sure I actually did... Luckily, my mom is visiting next week, so I can still get the dress up here anyway. The real question is, is it going to look so poorly made/ill-fitting that I'll be embarrassed to wear it, even if it is only a Halloween party? It's I think maybe the third or fourth costume I ever made...
In non-sewing news, tech week has been going fine for The Secret Garden, but a bunch of the people in the cast have been sick, and now today I feel like I'm getting a stuffy nose! This cannot happen right now - besides the show opening on Friday night, I also have my first singing gig through the new company I've started tomorrow, and it needs to go well!
