So I realized I haven't been keeping you all in the loop regarding how things are going with Relished Artistry itself--the projects I'm working on, etc. So this is what this post is about.
I ordered dress forms yesterday. Two different sizes--a medium and a medium/large for sizes 8 and 12 (I think... I can't remember! Haha!). They should be here within the next couple of weeks.
I also finished the "Yellow Rose" coat. I don't have any good pictures of it, but suffice to say I think it turned out very nicely. I'll get some ASAP. I will be listing it on Etsy as soon as I get my LCC stuff back from the state (which could take a while), so I can open up a checking account and use that info on Etsy.
I also started my new project--same pattern but with a longer "trench coat" feel. It's out of Black velour which I will be putting a very lightweight lining in (No More Satin!) because it's so heavy and warm. I got some new fabric paint so I've been experimenting with that, and a new way of drawing the leaves. The paint looks like a very lightweight foil in some lights... The camera doesn't do it justice At All. Here are some pics:
We'll see how it turns out as I start to sew it all together. I'm excited! The idea for blue roses actually came from my niece, Montana. Her birthday is coming up this next week (Happy 13!!) and liked a picture she had seen earlier of the other stuff. I told her I'd end up making her something, but probably not in time for her B-Day...
Until later, live life with relish!
