Create 365 - Day 143 to 147

I haven't been able to post daily, obviously, but I'm still going with my 365! Here are the latest additions...

Day 143
Here's the finished draft of the Bodice Front of the base pattern pieces I've been working on for myself. I forgot how involved this part was! I even started over at one point instead of backtracking a mistake. Whew! I was a bit rusty but I got my groove back.

Day 144
Here are some Circle Skirt drafts. They could be used as two different sized skirts but together they are the front and back for a 50s style swing dress.

Day 145
Circle skirt! Peachy, isn't it? I couldn't resist. I need more fun circle skirts in my wardrobe. They're very versatile, casual or dressy depending on what you wear them with, and just plain cute.
I tried to snap a pic of me wearing it but the lighting was horrible. Maybe another time. Seeing it on a hanger just doesn't do it justice.

Day 146 & 147
Two more Grumpy Nekos for the lovers of grumpy cats everywhere.

Create 365 - Day 138 to 142

Getting back into the swing of things slowly but surely. Just because I haven't posted doesn't mean I haven't created!

Day 138
A Grumpy Neko


Day 139
A loaf of bread from a different recipe than the last one.


Obviously it is delicious because half of it was gone before I remembered to take a pic.
Protip: Microwaves double as a decent bread box if you don't have one.

Day 140
A cotton face mask for when I have to deal with stinky things like cat boxes or bug spray.


Day 141
Another Grumpy Neko! This one is to sponsor a giveaway by Starrlight Jewelry -&- Sanctuary. Details as soon as they're available.


Day 142
And, last but not least, I am finally giving in and drafting a bodice sloper (a template to work off of) in my current size. I'm tired of looking at pretty dresses I can't afford or that are way too small for my curvy self.


This is the bodice back piece. The front piece will be coming along shortly. And, I'll need to redraft a circle skirt too but that's the easiest of the bunch.

Alright, well, a short sleep is in order and then it's back to work for this batling! I'll be making french toast with the homemade bread and then I've got that drafting to finish.
