Phylly got here at 9:00 this morning for our play day. She put on her red linen Vogue dress that was in one of our videos for a final fitting. It needed very little tweaking at the front waist, and that was it. Then we fitted a new Vogue blouse pattern to her and a McCall pattern dress. She is all set to sew, sew, sew!
I had a pattern ready for her to paper fit to me, but I left it at my other house. Very "Joy". I managed to find a couple other patterns to paper fit to me, so we did those. Mine were both blouses, of course.
I tried not to faint from this SHOCKING display of customer service while I was listening to her talk to me on the phone.
I walked into Helen Enox about 2:30 and perused fabric for the next hour. At some point, I saw Carolyn and went over to her to explain who I was. She said, "Oh, yes! I KNOW who you are. Please just get whatever you want, and we'll take care of it."
I did exactly that. I got a pretty grass green linen, a bright orange/red linen, and a floral denim -- all with matching buttons and thread. I am quite delighted with my finds, and I will make them up into something soon. Jerry likes me in red, so I'll probably do that one first. After my $45.00 credit, I think I only owed $27.00. Very nice!
That is all the excitement for today. Back home tomorrow and we meet with the builder for reconstruction from leak damage on Monday morning. Then the real fun begins!
