Snow, snow go away. I drive a sub-compact, and ice is not my friend. Although I did get to sleep in this morning, make waffles and eggs, then take an hour to drive the usual 1/2 hour to work. It was almost worse coming back, slid twice but didn't hit anything. At least the snow stopped, and should be cleared away. Let's hope it's the last of the season.
Making plans to sew some outfits for models so that I can do some photography. I refer to it as "Fashionable Peasantwear", because I'm starting with the basic stuff that any renfaire worker would be able to do, peasant blouse and gathered skirt, with a posible upgrade to a tiered or gored skirt. Doing a waist cinch is the part that I'm really interested in. I'd like to do it in leather, but I don't know where to get really stiff leather locally. I also can't find the damned "Little Corset Book" so that I can possibly make a cloth waist cinch in the interm. It would probably be faster to order a new one than find it, considering that it's only about four by six inches large and lost in a house full of crap. Doing up the garments would give me a nice hobby, and a goal of making an outfit for a specific person for a specific photoshoot. Maybe sell the outfit later for enough money to make the next outfit. If anyone knows where to get thick leather, like the kind for toolbelts, in the KC area, please let me know. And if you know where I left the corset book, tell me that also. It's probably within five feet of me and I'll never know.
