A few weeks ago my mother came over for lunch and said she needed a bathrobe, so we looked online and ordered one from Macy's (their Charter Club label). Yesterday she told me it had arrived and was dreadful, so I told her to bring it down with her the next time she came over, and I'd return it for her.
ZOMG, readers -- you won't believe how I spent yesterday!
About a month ago I'd received an email from a producer at Japan's Nippon TV network, saying they were interested in doing a short (2 1/2 minute) segment about vintage sewing machines. They'd discovered my blog and were wondering if they could do an interview.
There is still a great deal to do before this LBD is done, and I have less than twenty-four hours to do it. I need to insert a lapped side zipper. I need to attach the sleeves. I need to stitch down the neck facings and cuff facings. I need to hem a very wide skirt. And then there's Cathy's hair!
