Remember when I told you how great it is that there are computers that take my sample size 10 pattern (that is made by hand) and duplicates it in all my sizes (2-24) so it doesn’t all have to be done by hand? Well I still stand by that statement but there is a flaw to the system. Even though there are wonderful computers that make my patterns in all sizes, when they are sent to me they come on a HUGE and I mean HUGE roll of paper, NOT CUT OUT! Which means that I personally have been cutting every single pattern piece to every single size for hours upon HOURS, days upon DAYS! I am starting to wish I had hands like Edward Sciorrhands. It would go so much faster!
The dress I am currently working on, “Amanda,” has 42 pieces to it. It’s by far the most complicated dress in my collection. That is over 500 pattern pieces I have to cut out, and that is just the first dress. I have four other dresses to go!
Luckily for me my sweet husband let me teach him how to cut patterns and he helped me all day Sunday. He did a good job at it. And soon he will be getting a promotion at Taylor Morgan to assistant fabric cutter!! I wasn’t kidding when I told him he would be cutting fabric before he knew it! The good thing is he now has a new appreciation for cutting. Which means I will be buying new tools I have been desiring because he now longs for them too! Soon Taylor Morgan will be purchasing two Gingher Rotary Cutters:
This little treasure is such a wonderful creation and I can’t wait to own it!
