Costuming Thoughts

March 1, 2010

I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a great seamstress. I wish I were; it would make my life easier. But, alas, this is not the case.

Recently, courtesy of Anne (with whom we are staying), I discovered Threads Magazine. Between my adventures in the Land of Draping and this periodical, I feel marginally more comfortable in attempting to conceptualize my next Maid Marian dress.

You know, it is tough. I close my eyes and I know exactly what I want it to look like. But ask me to verbalize or sketch it out and forget about it.

In any case, I like the magazine. There are articles that go way over my head but have pretty pictures. Then there are articles with eight or so different instructions for dealing with challenging hems. Articles at my level. Articles on topics I can use and learn from.

That is exciting to me. Maybe I can speed up my process a bit.

Maybe not. :)
