I found that I really wanted to relax and binge on Parks and Rec for most of the weekend other than while I was at the theatre, since I was so tired after tech week last week. So I slept in every day, did a little cleaning around the house, and ran a few errands. I did do some sewing, though. The pieces for the bustle dress underskirt are all together - next step is the waistband, then a hem, then ruffles and it will be done. I also got an etsy order for Princess Sofia over the weekend, so I worked on that yesterday instead of the bustle skirt. It's almost done, but I forced myself to go to bed before I had finished it. I should finish it in about 30 mins this evening, and it will ship out tomorrow. I'm hoping I might also have the time/energy to pleat the skirt into the waistband, too.

Still no CoCo Recap - A) It's tech week, and B) the pro photos are coming out really nice this year, so I'm thinking about buying some of them to use in the recaps. 

So anyway, despite it being tech week, I had a little bit of time over the weekend to figure out the dimensions/pattern for the underskirt for the stripey bustle dress, and on Monday, I had enough time to cut out four of the pieces. I should be able to cut out the other three today, and start assembling them. I will cut out the ruffles once that's done - I'm hoping that maybe I'll be able to use selvage for the ruffle hems, but I'm not sure I have enough fabric for that. But I am loving the silk satin so far! I've never worked with silk satin before, and it is so soft and lovely, and it even smells good! I wish Home Fabrics had had some better colors, because I would have bought so much more of it. 

Also, I am soooo looking forward to next week, when the show will be open and I will have free weeknights. I have free time for most of the following week, too, and then I start rehearsals for my next show, Annie, in which I will be playing Miss Hannigan. So in the meantime, I need to take advantage of my freedom, clean up the house (it's a disaster right now), sew, and actually relax!
