Costuming decision

I *do* have enough costumes. I know we all know the "How many costumes do you need? Just one more..." thing, but honestly and brutally, I have enough costumes for all the performing I do.

So I've decided I'm going on a costume-making hiatus. I've got the Fab Crazy Floral that's under way, and the SPACE! costume on the shelf, and once those are done, I'm going to leave it right there for the while. I will still have my fabric and bead stashes. I'm going to have to mull over what I do about those.

This leaves me with a sewing vacuum. I've decided I'm going to fill that with ordinary dress-making, i.e. making clothes for myself. I used to do this, a long time ago, and I'm jolly-well going to get back to it, and do it better. I've booked myself on a workshop in June, to boost my confidence and hopefully gain some new fitting skills. I'm really looking forward to it!

I shall look forward to seeing them - my next class project is a dress to wear for a wedding, rather than the costumey stuff I have been making (which I still need to LJ)

Great British Sewing Bee starts tonight...I'm not sure whether I'm going to watch it yet but I imagine dressmaking will be the new baking now so you're bang on trend!

I've been following several sewing blogs for a while and the dressmaking thing has been hovering for the last few months, mostly hindered by lack of confidence. So GBSB is coming at the perfect time for me! Unfortunately it's on a Tuesday (teaching night) so I'm going to have to download it somehow (yay for BBC iplayer!).
