Sew Busy

My, sewing has been a busy (and lucrative) hobby lately! I sold another $45 dress on Etsy.com this afternoon! Once I sell off all these extra things I've had in my closet, I'm excited to start doing custom dresses. For now, I'm working on 3 bridesmaids dresses for a friend, and a Prom dress for Jamie Beck!! I also got a 2nd job, seamstressing for the Scera theater, and I'm absolutely loving it. What a joy to be creative with what seems like an endless supply of beautiful fabric, creating beautiful things, that get to be showcased in front of thousands of people! The past few weeks we've been working on "Into the Woods", which openned today. It always makes for a hectic week, working with a very particular but brilliant designer, especially when it comes down to franticly sewing on buttons just minutes before the show opens. I just love the theater atmosphere! Here's some of the costumes I helped put together:
Rapunzel's Prince Cinderella's Prince
Jack
The Baker
The Baker's Wife

How fun! So, did Little Red Riding Hood heal okay? Emily said that she was screaming on stage (where the screams didn't belong).

I think Little Red is ok! I didn't hear about anything really traumatic, else I probably would have heard about it. I hope Emily enjoyed the show!
