...and I sooooo want to use it! A sewing list that is...
See it hit me while I was making the Versace Inspired Dress, I'm stuck and in a rut with the Pinstripe Follies. I decided that I wouldn't sew any of the additional pieces until the jacket was completed and well...the jacket isn't done...so no other pieces are finished either. See, stuck!
But because I've been working on something that has me charged up and has brought my mojo roaring back, I've now got a list of things I want to make...mostly dresses of course...but pieces that intrigue me and make me want to chain myself to my sewing machine until they've emerged from flat pieces of fabric to garments that are hanging in my closet.
So I'm gonna sew my list. I'm gonna put the Pinstripe Follies on the back burner and hope and pray that I come back to them...especially since I've got about 2 months of fall/winter sewing left before I'll move onto spring sewing.
Speaking of inspired...I journeyed to the Garment District this afternoon on the A Train. One stop and I was in fiber heaven. I bought the navy piping...which btw I've decided to use. So thanks everyone for weighing in with your opinions and reasons. I know the navy piping is the way to go with the dress, I just lost it for a minute Sunday evening when I thought I could actually finish the dress. It has a few more hours worth of work but it will definitely be completed this weekend. Mama needs a new dress for work! *LOL*
The rest of my list is to finish up the tweedy straight skirt and cardigan, and to make two or three more dresses. I don't really want to share what the dresses will be right now because I don't want the blog jinx...you know when you talk about something so much and then it doesn't see the light of day...can I just say "Pinstripe Follies" to prove my point.
Anyway...know that I will be sewing this weekend...that I will have pics of finished garments to share...and that my mojo is BACK!
