Gearing Up for Gatsby
This afternoon while cleaning (or attempting to clean) my sewing room, I saw some vintage rayon in my stash and thought that it would be quite nice for my Gatsby Summer Afternoon dress for this year. Thinking that it was way too early to think about Gatsby, a look at my archives revealed that I began my sewing plans on June 11th! I can't believe it's been a year already!
Considering how much The Sew Weekly community has grown over the past year, I couldn't imagine a better event to hold a meet-up. We'll have the next couple months to sew our period-authentic (this isn't a spectator event – everyone that goes needs to look the part) outfits and then we can casually picnic together at the event. After last year's picnic I said that the theme of 2011's picnic would be "no theme and hardly any work." I'm sticking to that. There will be no tables or chairs at the Trott camp, nor will there be shrimp cocktail on ice. This year is all about casual picnicking, drinking, desserts (you'll bring your own picnic, of course).
That all said, who's in?
