These adult kids do have the gift of taking us by surprise, don't they. One of my daughters phoned to say she had applied for a job and been accepted. This was Monday. She leaves for the job on Saturday and is really excited to see how it plays out. She will be Seamstress on a big cruise ship touring the Mediterranean for three weeks! The job appears to be ensuring the Entertainment crew have suitable outfits for what they plan to do - likely skits and dance routines. Wonderful timing for her as her youngest graduated in June.

Cruise ships have seamstresses?!?
Doesn't surprise me. I've known dancers who worked on cruise ships, those costumes need fixing at times, and it would make sense where new numbers (and related costumes) would be created while on the ship.

I'm not complaining, I'm just amazed that, yeah, I guess any place that has that many people on board would need a seamstress.

You don't want wardrobe malfunctions.

It's interesting all the jobs that are out there that don't even enter our awareness! Sounds like an interesting gig for her. I have a friend who has worked a number of cruises as a nurse - they have a quite sophisticated health care suites onboard most of those floating cities.

So I have heard. I have, mercifully, not yet had to visit the medical clinic on any of the ships I've travelled on.

The shows on the ships can be pretty slick and sophisticated nowadays. Unlike some cruisers, I'm not there every night but we do usually take in one or two just to see what they're doing. I imagine that any job you'd have in a regular theatre would be found on there. Sound and lighting crew, stage crew, seamstress, etc.

Altering costumes as there is now a new crew comes into play too. She is very creative and capable - her business is corsetiere. Made to measure corsets and bras. She also designs and makes wedding gowns etc..

Someone phoned her to tell her about the job- she didn't see an advert first. Community grapevice type stuff.

In the corse've events ... seems supportive to have a seam stressed ... ships often have the carpenter put oakum in the opening places in the hull ... core values? Keeps the vessel afloat ...

That is such an interesting line of business!! I'm guessing she's had an interesting journey to get to this niche business.

It has been a long trip to get where she wanted to be. It doesn't help when you have to work at something else to help feed the kids and pay the mortgage! She loves to sew, and really likes corsets. Sometimes they are the modern, fancy, over the blouse type ones. Sometimes therapeutic ones for people with specific spine problems. I doubt they will get rich with this business but she certainly has fun meeting people.

Tis a binding job ... meant to lift those with leaps and bounds ... rabid tendencies of adolescents?

Mostly because they never learned about attached responsibilities ... sacred grindings or grounds?

If asked they say it is nothing ... and nothing continues like something you've never observed adequately as a hold-up ... essence of support? Thus sag gacis is lifted ...
