Finally getting somewhere!!!

I`m finally feeling like i`m getting somewhere.
 I feel like i have been sewing non stop for the last few days.

 31 wendy dresses close to finishing are now hanging on the  rack .
I have another 28 that i would like to get to this stage before tomorrow morning so i can spend Sunday putting in zips and binding.

I THINK I NEED TO GET OUT MORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!   And not just to Spotlight where i`m heading soon.

                                           Empty rack waiting to be full.

                                            Finally something hanging even if they are inside out and unfinished.

You might just have been wondering where i have been the last few months.

I`ve been hiding with a pair of scissors in my hand or behind the sewing machine.
If it doesn`t rain it pours!!!  As soon as i had taken the department store job i got into incube8r Fitzroy along with the Sydney store a few weeks earlier , with the Olive Grove and Christmas  on it`s way the work more than tripled. All the dresses i had been making for this time of year had basically sold so it was back to the sewing machine after cutting. The pictures are of a few dresses i`ve cut,this week i`m aiming on making about 40 plus dresses and tops to start distributing through the three stores . I think there is about 80 dresses and 20 odd tops ,a few skirts and 20 plus singlets all to be finished by the end of next week , MAD i know but i can only try.
I`m going to post daily up dates and photo`s, hopefully it will keep me on target At the moment i have piles of half made dresses and tops on the floor  awaiting zips and overlocking.
