In Which There Is More Sewing And Derby Watching

Today was a day very like yesterday, involving a whole lot of watching derby and sewing.  The only difference was that Connor slept in until past ten in the morning; probably making up for yesterday's past-dawn bedtime.  He had a fantastic day once he decided to get up, and he didn't have a single seizure!  I'd say he's officially over his illness and ready to go back to school tomorrow. 

My bustle skirt is completely finished now except for the fastening, which I haven't exactly figured out yet.  It needs to be really flat to be comfortable because it's going underneath a waist cincher and a vest, so I'll play around with a few different things.  I'm leaning towards velcro, which would be a quick fix but would probably work since no one is going to see it; I'm just not sure if it will be strong enough.  So we'll just have to see what I come up with!

I expect to finish up the skirt tomorrow while Connor is in school.  Then I'll head out to go fabric shopping for bloomer material, which should be fun!  I'm thinking I'll probably stick with an undyed or white cotton muslin, but maybe I'll get crazy and go for a daring pinstripe or something. 

I do like to live on the edge.

You and your daring bloomers.

Would hook and eye work? Or a combination of Velcro with some hook & eyes for reinforcements? Do I even know what I'm talking about? No. No I do not.

I do know this, though: Connor having a seizure-free day is very good news! Hooray!
