Last night we had another repeat of thunder and rain. Less rain but rain none the less. And we are to have a repeat again tonight.
Late in the afternoon, we headed out to finish up the paper work at the bank so we can remove the last subject this morning. It will be a done deal as soon as we sign the paper work, scan it and send it via email. We now need to start packing in earnest. Time will fly by quickly.
I was thinking about how little sewing I have done to date this year. The little bit I did was for Daughter and some of it was teaching her to do zippers. The last item I did was a godet in a rodeo queen dress.
Not sewing doesn't mean I have stopped reading about sewing techniques. It is a part of my life and I will continue to read even when I start sewing again. Yesterday I read a post on Tips for Sewing Better Linings
I do like the idea of turning the lining dart into a pleat. I always did the darts in the skirt of the lining when sewing rodeo queen dresses. The pleat will be a good alternative when I sew for myself. The zipper instructions were a bit confusing to me though. I didn't quite get it so will have to do a practice run. I found that if I prick stitched the lining to the zipper close to the teeth, I had no issues with the lining getting caught. But, I will try this technique when I do a practice zipper.
