season's end

We've come to the end of our contract at work. It's the end of the season for the wardrobe department, except for management who will begin to organize for next season after they get a well deserved holiday.

The understudy costumes are finished, we had time today to tidy up our room tally up all the time records, make notes for next season, and toast one another's work.

Here you can see on my rack, all the patterns that I made this season. That's eight feet solid of patterns. I'll leave them there until next January when I will come back and sort through everything, throw away most of them and keep a few that I think are worth storing.

The last two weeks have been busy finishing up, as well as trying to arrange some more contract work in the fall.
Those things are still up in the air, but what I am sure about is that I need a little time off. Time to go to the lake, swim, read, relax, and hang out with family and friends.
Thanks for reading so far and I'll try to prep a few posts to happen when I am away.
Then I'll come back and try to wrap up a few things that I started here but didn't have the time to finish- like the tailcoat draft and maybe a bit of trouser making and who knows what.
I'll be back soon.


  1. Thanks Terri for writing this blog.
    I enjoyed reading about your job and seeing the patterns and garments you made with your colleagues. Have a great time and I will be following your blog in the future again.
    Regards Els

  2. It has been fun to watch your season unfold and now wrap up. Thanks for all the effort you put into this.
