Manufacturing Wing: 2023 blueprint 

Posting for accountability and discussion:

  • 4 "new" acts for Scarlett Letter
  • 4 "new" gowns/hosting/audience outfits
  • 2 rebuilds of existing acts (see 3 R's)
  • get started on the 3 R's - Revisit, Revise, Retire. - Address all acts between debut of Oct 2004 through December 2007
  • 1 New "stewardess Wardrobe"
  • Dispatch with at least 2 bins of fabric/patterns that I have no vision for

This will involve some writing, despite the existential dread it causes. Photo taking, which I also do not do, and some thorough cleaning, to make room for the projects.

Manufacturing Wing: Stash-buster gone wrong 

Hello from the Manufacturing Wing of Letter Industries. I present to you a stash buster gone wrong. It all started with a pattern I acquired a few years ago, and fabric purchased for an abandoned project (Comic book  theme night with TMCC) several years ago, and some remnant lace and a random bottle of rocaille beads that I can't identify the source on. It was supposed to be a wearable muslin for shows when I need a fast cover to transition from performing to hosting.



It is now several hours into beading, I have ordered buttons, more beads, and have planned a layer or two to go underneath.

Here is a first pass at beading the lace fabric onto the sleeve.



I will report back later with more beading progress and the underlayer plans.
