I’ve been really lazy lately 🙂 After work I have a hard time making myself sew… So, I haven’t done much. I did post my two latest creations: Sarah Shrug, Plaid Blouse. I got a bit of a start making up the pattern for my blouse and also cut out my wrap dress. I think, though, that I will wait to finish my dress until I can actually wear it 🙂 I also still have to work on redrafting the sleeves. I really would like to post that pattern on BurdaStyle as well, because I think it’s a great basic piece, and it’s so simple to make.
So, after getting the blouse pattern up, I plan to make a handbag for the PatternReview contest, and if I can muster the energy, start altering a pattern into my wool coat.
My fabric arrived Tuesday and I was a little disappointed. I’m still very excited about the fabrics, but they weren’t exactly what I was expecting (it’s always hard when you order online). First of all, my pretty blue and ivory jersey was sold out (even though it said there were 4 left when I ordered!). Boo! I was most excited about that one 😦 Then, the red wool was different than my favorite wool knit (from my LBD), and a bit scratchy (which the other was not at all). So, that wool must not be a jersey- I think it’s just a single knit. The silk is pretty (I knew what to expect there), and the black jersey is actually better than I expected and will be very useful for some basic tops 🙂
Happy almost weekend (sort of)… ha. Can you tell I’m ready?
