Hello all. The weather is still hot hot hot here and the pressure of work is still intense here at Sewing by Annie's. Everyone seems to be leaving their sewing to the last minute and I'm getting myself know as the lady who will save the day.
On my desk this week are just a few of the jobs I've done since Monday morning and what I have to do [so far] this week....
This little Memory bear has initials monogrammed on the pocket on his front to remember a much loved husband and is now winging his way to his new home in Leicestershire....he's just one of my many bears being ordered from another part of the country and each one make me smile to think that I'm conquering another place.
From 6 different shirts I've made these 4 different little bears and then I made the bunting to match....cute or what?
I also had a fitting for this gorgeous prom dress on Monday morning and plan to shorten it at some point today....this customer's own seamstress let her down at the last minute so she brought the dress to me to do before Thursday!!
Monday afternoon I had a wedding dress fitting. The bride had previously been to me with another dress which I shortened for her but since then she says she has put weight on and wasn't happy with it so had bought another one so I now have to shorten this one last minute before her wedding.....another job for later today!!
Isn't the lacy detail on the bodice just gorgeous?
I also have..
- Jeans to shorten
- work trousers to repair
- 2 pair of shorts to take in
- 2 tops to shorten the sleeves on
....and that's just until the next customer comes through my door!!!
So that's all from me for today. The fans on and the sewing machine and I will be getting a good work out today. I will catch up on as many desks as I can in my coffee breaks but if I fail to get round you all please forgive me.
