I’ve been ogling choker tunics and dresses since last summer, and finally had the right fabric and pattern.
We’ve had a cold winter in Atlanta (yes, freezing temperatures!). In my closet there are 2 cold-weather robes – one leopard print, the other Hello Kitty – and both have been worn to death. Time for something a bit more adultish.
We’re a third of the way through the first month of the new year and I have yet to sew anything for me.
Several quick Christmas projects, including one on my new coverstitch.
In this part of the world, vests are standard wear for autumn and winter. I have a few in my closet but had never considered making one until I saw a sample garment at Hobby Lobby, placed right beside the fabric and patterns. Does anyone else think longingly of the days when fabric stores had beautifully made sample garments placed with the fabric? Smart marketing – it makes we buyers think, “I want that!”.
A mixed bag of results from the retreat, and nothing finished that weekend. I came home with a car full of UFOs that are finally done, 2 weeks later. Only one pattern was new to me – Butterick 6494 – so the majority of this post is a review.
