It's Sunday evening and I haven't turned on a sewing machine or even had the time to clean off my cutting table. My last project sits, waiting patiently for me to return to it...but I've had a busy weekend out...and tomorrow is work yet again!
I did however, partake in the fabric.com designer fabric sale...I was dragging my feet about buying any more of the Vera Wang Collection until the Cats Away Double Dipping sale was advertised. 25% off the total of the 50% off reduction was just too good to pass up so I bought a few yards...not as much as the last time...but still some yardage.
I also bought a new Loes Hinse pattern. I only have 2 or 3 of these patterns because I don't really feel they are plus size...although I know several plus size women that sew with them frequently and get great results...I guess I've always been put off by the number of alterations I would have to make to them. Which is silly right considering I alter the heck out of everything else! So I saw this jacket...the Ascot Jacket...check out it's back views...that's what sold me...
....actually made up on Stitcher's Guild. It's different and something that will work well in my wardrobe without actually making me look like everyone else when suited up for meetings! So it will begin winging it's way to me this week. I have a drapey black/cream rayon that I bought from Fabric Mart last year to make a completely different outfit but the fabric should work well for a trial jacket and skirt from this pattern.
I really just don't feel like sewing. I feel like I'm on the cusp waiting for something to change...something to happen...and since I have plenty to wear in the closet...I am just not encouraged to sew. Is anyone else feeling like this?
Well I'm off...I'm actually heading back out the door...and as always...more later!
