Today was the day. The tunics were due. At least the dawn's early light was welcoming.
I had three sleeves left to set. I couldn't finish them last night. I was too tired. Plus, LB was at a party. BSD was at work. Leaving the Big Ballerina and I free for a dinner date. Just the two of us. This never happens. Three guesses where we went. And the first two don't count.
Did I get them done?
It's ok, BB. You can come out.
Phew! The Big Ballerina doesn't need to arabesque au naturel. And I'm happy to report...
neither do the others.
I'm not going to lie, though. I had to call for backup. I was lost on those collars. Luckily, a friend came over Friday morning and squared me away.
The best part of today was crossing the threshold into the costume room. Oh boy, was it thrilling to be in there among the racks of tutus and tulle. It was intoxicating.
So intoxicating, that I now have THREE MORE TUNICS TO SEW!
But, you know what? Next time I'm bringing my camera in with me...
Oh, and the sleeves and hem are unfinished. They wanted them left that way to tailor them to the girls. I didn't go all fancy with the pinking shears. ;)
