Isn't it funny how when you are busy you can find more time to do things than when you are not busy?
Four months flash by.....I was working, but boy things feel strange theses days.
I need to get back to my posts about making my coat and my thoughts on pattern drafting for women. but I am ignoring that right now and talking about something new.
Anyway, onwards and upwards.
I received a call mid summer by the designer asking me if I could reproduce an 18th century costume I had cut way back in 2014. It was to be for a filmed version of a new Opera piece. The AD loved the costumes we had made and wanted a new version for another singer.
Of course I could! (confident that I still had the patterns handy, because I keep a lot of my old patterns.) In the cold light of the next day, I went looking for those patterns only to find out that during my covid cleanup at the studio, I had thrown out those seven year old patterns, because I figured I wasn't going to need them again.
Isn't that always the way?
I proceeded to redraft, to the new singer's measurements: luckily they provided me with the originals to look at so I could jog my memory, and meanwhile the designer went shopping.
