I think I wrote a dance update this week and lost it.

Quick recap on thinks making me excited:

-Teaching new classes on Thursday. It's going well and only having a 9 minute commute makes a huge difference.

-Getting back into working out but being more realistic about only doing 12 workouts a month right now because with dance prep and dance practice I don't need to be doing more than 3 workouts a week right now.

-Karim Nagi weekend is next weekend. Multiple WS to attend (as Jo's guests for hooking Deseos up with Karim about 3-4 years ago) a show to be in and I'll be doing a live drum solo with him. Must prep green Egypt-y costume.

-Live show with Katsura Mazurka the following weekend. Balkany fun Mother's Ruin goodness.

-And the weekend after that my Turkish Roma students perform my choreography at a studio recital.

I'm trying to quickly make use of my extra scraps from projects. I still have another curtain to make for Eva-belly, but from scraps too small for that (and from scraps from a yellow curtain I made for the studio kitchen) I made some new zippered covers for three throw pillows in my bedroom.

And I bought The Colette Sewing Handbook and look forward to making more skirts and...hopefully...dresses this spring. I am very happy with the book's approach to sewing as a process and a lifestyle.

Dress form

In preparation for making more than just skirts. I've ordered a second dress form. My current one is near perfect for the hips and waist but way too large in the chest to do any dresses or even put one of my bras on it.

A few years ago when I bought it, I made the mistake of  thinking the form's bust measurement should be near my own bust-line measurement, not considering that dress forms aren't really stacked. I now know that the dress form bust should be my ribcage size and I can pad it from there.

So I'll be going through the process of padding a form to mimic my own in a few weeks.
