Have you ever considered a career as an interior decorator?

Oh, if only you could see the rambling wreck that is my house.... ;D 

Actually I had no idea how fun this is until I had a dollhouse to decorate. The problem with being an interior decorator for a living, though, is that you have to decorate to fit other people's preferences, which may or may not coincide with your own, and which they might not even know how to articulate.  Plus I'd probably need to get a degree in it, which I can't afford. But as career fields go, I think I'd enjoy that one more than most.

OK, here's another update of this week's projects:

Crocheted skirt and new blouse by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

Sophia tries on a new blouse and crocheted skirt.  (It might not look like it in this photo, but the skirt is fully lined with a pale cream slip.)

Black knit shorts by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

They look almost like a skirt in this photo, but those bottoms are black knit shorts. The knit fabric is just a bit too thick for the waistband style, so it looks a little bulky in person, but fortunately that is slightly less obvious in this photo.

Gold trousers by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

These trousers aren't really in one of Sophia's preferred colors (never mind that this combo mirrors the crimson and gold of her Haldane arms), but she thinks Eilonwy will like them.  I'll just need to make sure I don't take any photos of Eilonwy wearing them in her bedroom, since this is the same fabric I used to make her bedsheet and pillows!

Patrick's police uniform by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

Patrick's uniform came in the mail yesterday.  (He has more appropriate shoes to wear with it, but I just didn't take the time to hunt them down before taking this photo.)  I might need to make some minor modifications--for one thing, I can't quite see him wearing a badge that says "UltraRescue"!--but I paid less for this uniform than it would have cost for the fabric and iron-on patch fabric to make one, so I thought it was a great find.  I think by the time Balance of Power takes place, he's been newly promoted to detective and usually wears plain clothes, but I figured this would be useful for any flashback scenes.

New shirt by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

I started a new shirt for Devlin and/or Morgan this morning.  This one will be light blue with white buttons. I am also experimenting with a different style of front placket, so this is the topstitching along one side.

Here are the shirts that I finished this weekend:

Devlin's shirt by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

The blue of this new shirt brings out the color of Devlin's eyes.

Morgan's new shirt by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

Morgan was as happy to get his new black shirt as Devlin was to get a new shirt in any other color but black!

Shirt and tie in Morgan colors by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

I really need to remake Morgan's green tie.  The current tie's knot looks sloppy.  But this fabric is a pain to work with.

Slip-covered chair by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

I draped the pink floral pincushion chair with black velour to match the velour I covered the sofa cushion with.

Pillow fabric by evian_delacourt, on Flickr

You may have to zoom in to see the gold stitching I am adding to the cross-shaped intersections in this pattern.  This embroidered fabric will be used to cover the throw pillow that goes on the slip-covered chair.

Very nice, Evie; I also really like are the cargo pants Father Devlin and his Grace are wearing.
