So it's Saturday afternoon here in NJ and it's stopped snowing...I'm safely ensconced in the sewing cave with the heater going and the TV playing...more Law & Order of course! *smile*
I'm going to spend the weekend working on the rest of the pieces of the Lavender and Gray Skies wardrobe. I'm adding the facings to the jacket and hemming the sleeves then I'm moving onto the dress. If I have time left this weekend, I will work on the cardigan also. If I get all of this done, it will leave only the two tops to be completed.
As a reminder the two tops are, Simplicity 2566 ~ in the white cotton stretch fabric and I've added Butterick 3124 an out of print sleeveless cowl neck top from the cardigan fabric.
I've read the PR reviews for it and Lara's review on her blog, Thornberry. One of the first things I plan on doing is lengthening the top. Even from the photos on the pattern envelope the top is too short. If I have enough fabric I may make it dress length but that's something that I will determine when I'm working on the garment. I do like the fact that the top has side bust darts, which are my darts of choice.
Since I no longer have a photographer and haven't figured out how to take pics of myself yet...trying to decide if I want an entirely new camera...it will be a minute before I have pictures of me in the completed garments. But I am happily sewing away in my sewing cave working on finishing up this wardrobe.
...as always, more later!
