March has snuck up on me, I dare say! In some ways I’m glad it’s here (because that just means there’s only 65 days until I’m done with Mount Mary University, and then 89 days until I leave for Italy, but who’s counting?), but I’m also starting to fret. My next outfit is due March 26th and I’ve only gotten as far as the patterning. Luckily, that’s done, though. I can speed through cutting and sewing in just about no time since I’ll be making similar jodhpur-ish bloom pant things (idk what I’m going to call them) that I made Sarah, but the top might prove to be a bit more difficult. Debating whether or not I want a bias casing, or a ribbon casing for the elastic that goes around the upper edge.
In other news, it is, and has been, officially my spring break and yes I definitely needed this. I have gotten 4 days, and 3 nights since I came home Thursday that I’ve been with my love, and I’m feeling pretty recharged. Had to get in as much time as possible over the weekend because he works pretty much from dusk ’til dawn due to his two part time jobs during the week. (And with Dark Souls 2 coming out tomorrow, it’ll be even harder to see him ;P Just kidding. He’s actually pretty good about giving time to spend with me and neglecting his games so I wont be too hard on the poor man).
Other than seeing m’love, I’ve managed to complete one C/D scale bra that will be sent out tomorrow (about 2 and a half weeks earlier than planned which will make her quite happy~), some awesome scale flowers, and a bunch of other random stuff. I am taking special orders to be completed for pick up at KitsuneKon.

I can’t believe that KitsuneKon is so close. I don’t feel ready at all.
Okay picture time 😀
I got to work more with leather last week. It was exciting! The left one is a curved seam, and the right one simulates a waistline dart.
(almost) ALL the colors!
