Tomorrow is June 30th and I realize that my sewing has really slowed down alot this year...I've only made 17 garments so far...I know to some that sounds like alot but my output has definitely decreased this year. And I can't figure out if it's because I've been out and about more...or if I just have such a full closet now that the need to sew non-stop has faded...
Probably the full-closet syndrome because I wake up most mornings knowing I have the appropriate thing to wear to work...btw, I wore the navy silk dress to work today with the white Butterick 4980 jacket. Not sure it was a good combination to wait out in the hot sun for the bus today...I was sweating like a pig! I think it's because I'm not use to taking the bus at 10:30 in the morning...it's still relatively cool at 6:30am.
BTW the dress did wear well other than that...but it took a minute to get use to all of the fabric swirling around my legs...my normal TNT dress is more straight than a-line.
I haven't worn the silk jersey bright floral cardigan yet, because I have this awesome sandwashed red silk crepe sitting on the cutting table waiting it's turn to be made into one more TNT dress. I've noticed that I'm working with more of my silks instead of the linen that I normally turn to at this time of the year.
Speaking of fabric...I have to tell you that I haven't bought a single piece since the Elliott Berman run (and even used most of it!). I'm trying to make it until September...but we'll see...August might be tough! *LOL* The pile of fabric from PR Weekend Philly is still laying on the suitcase in the living room...*sigh* It's been commented on more than once by the SO so I guess it's time to move it.
I'm looking forward to this weekend...I think I want to sleep late more than anything...work has been intense lately.
I never found a copy of the June BurdaStyle magazine...I think I'm going to have to break down and subscribe...I'm a little bummed by this...but I'm tired of searching for the magazine lately. Speaking of patterns did anyone else get the email from both Butterick and McCalls where they are featuring one different pattern each week for $2.99? I think it's a kewl idea but if you buy only one and add the $4 shipping/handling charge I don't know how great the deal is...y'know what I mean?!!
Finally, I want to thank everyone for your very kind comments on the Museum Inspired dress...and that's it for me tonight...I'm off to bed...
as always, more later!
