However, I've got a more pressing problem. The fabric I want to use to make a dress has been paired with a boucle for a jacket/dress combo. Now I'm not in the mood to make that jacket/dress combo but I really want the dress. And I know myself, if I sew the dress without making the jacket it could be years, if ever, before the jacket gets made...but I really want a bright pink wool crepe dress to brighten up the cold & dreary winter days that are coming.
More what to dos....it may be pointless because I might not even get to it, right? So of course you know the piece I'm going to want to sew more than anything is going to be the dayum pink wool crepe! *LOL* I think I'm going to separate them and see what happens...maybe a new idea will come to me for the boucle fabric.
I'm pretreating the wool crepes in the dryer now. I've pulled patterns (yes, there will be several new patterns used), notions (an invisible zipper means you can't see it so if it's lighter it's okay), buttons and lining fabrics, again not exact matches but they will work.
My list has been revised yet again! I know, I know but when I first make the list I have grandiose ideas of what I can accomplish. As I get closer to the actual sewcation, I have a better idea of what I feel like sewing, so the list gets pruned. Now days before I ensconce myself into the sewing cave I have an idea of how challenging, yet familiar I want my sewing to be. I've moved a piece from the list to the three-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend later this month when I can spend my time working on just it. The dayum pink wool crepe dress has definitely been added to the list.
If I can get my new DVD player installed, I will be all set! Mountain Dew on-hand, check. Potato chip stock in place, check. Ideas ready to go, check, check. So I'll leave you with a pic of my cutting table with everything placed on it, waiting to leave their flat fold status and become new garments in my wardrobe!
One last thing...the Mood 50% off one day sale - got me today!
