Yeap, one more pair of lined black wool crepe pants are finished. One more UFO from last year done...and maybe, just maybe this year I might end up with five pairs of black pants. I mean I'm close...I'm so close that I can actually feel it...*LOL* These pants will work with quite a few jackets as well as twinsets in my wardrobe so I am thrilled that they are done.
I'm going to start on my last project for the weekend ~ another dress! I know, I know but this sewing vacay I just had dress fever. The weather is cooperating next week - it will be in the 40's and 50's all week so it will make dress wearing that much easier. Besides I have pretty much decided that I like wearing dresses and suits with skirts so much better than pantsuits so I am going to try and wear them more. We shall see if the weather beats back my desire.
Anyway, here is a pic of the fabric and lining that I am using for the next version of my TNT dress.
Here is the road map for this garment.
Finally some answers to a few questions...
Julie asked from where I got the Nancy Zieman technique? Sorry, I should have mentioned the book title when I posted about the technique. It's from her book, "The Busy Woman's Sewing Book" published in 1988. I reviewed the book in August 2008. You can read the review, here.
Also, someone else asked about the size of my closet awhile ago. I'm sorry that I'm just replying to you, however, my closet is normal size. One of those regular width apartment size closets with a long bar and a shelf above it. Clothing is stored by category, all pants together, all skirts, dresses, etc. All of my sweaters, tank tops, turtlenecks, etc. are stored on the shelf. I guess it would seem as if my closet should be packed but I am a huge believer in closet clean outs. I do one at the start of every season and am pretty ruthless about it. If I don't keep rotating things out there will be no space for the new things that I want to make!
I'm off to sew...just wanted to give you an update on how my sewing vacay is progressing!
