I spent the day sewing.
My mom mailed me a pattern so I could make an attempt at sewing a dress for this photoshoot we have coming up with weekend.
Marcus and I are portraying the parts of Daisy and Gatsby (from the Great Gatsby) for our friend, Blake's, semester project.
We're really excited!
The problem is, I've never sewn anything without my mom's help.
I opened up the pattern laid it all out, and then realized I had NO IDEA how to read a pattern.
My mom never uses them, so seriously, it was like a foreign language.
So, I sat there, perplexed.
Then, almost against my control, I began cutting--freestyle.
Hahah but guess what? It's turning out!
I even put in a sleeve--two in fact!
I'm pretty impressed with myself.
Now if only I had a custom body form, because I have no idea how I'm going to get the darting done, so it actually fits up top...wish me luck!
Want to hear about another impressive thing I did since last post?
Last night at our ward social (church) we were on teams and playing games in order to win a prize.
And guess what I had to do?
Play, oh man, I forgot what it's called, um, let me ask Marcus...
KNOCK-OUT! or LIGHTNING! or SPEED!
I've basically never shot a basket in my life. I was the only girl. I was wearing these boots. Please note the heels.
I looked so awkward.
There were about 11 people playing and I made it to the top 4!
Hahah who knew?
I'm at my friend Jenny's tonight, one because I like her, so hanging out at her house is fun, and two because Marcus is having band practice over here with her husband.
She took my pictures for me today. She was nervous, but I think she did an awesome job!
She's also an expert on nail polish, so you should go check her blog out and give yourself a manicure!
