As you can probably tell by the lack of posts...I did not sew this weekend! Shortly after watching the Golden Globes, I started to feel ill...and continued to feel that way until yesterday afternoon. Because of that, today was my first day back at work. So there has been very little progress on the Vogue 8623 jacket.
However, I did get the collar basted on...and did one more try-on to make sure that I didn't imagine the fact that this pattern was sewn straight from the envelope without one...yes I said not one adjustment to the pattern and it FITS!
So here is how it looks on the hanger now with the collar basted on:
And here it is auditioning the buttons that Elizabeth, Jack and I purchased from M&J last Saturday!
There is still quite a bit of work left to get it ready to face the world...the lining is in pieces on the table...and just go from there with a finishing list, but I am encouraged and hopefully will be working on the jacket this weekend.
Just want to let the winners of the blogaversary gifts know that your prizes haven't gone out yet...due to illness...but I will try to get them out shortly! Thanks for sending your addresses to me so quickly!
