The weather has been frightful here. Between the cold and now the snow, I'm missing the more comfortable temperatures of last winter. Because of this, I've worn pants much more this year than last and I've found my pants wardrobe to be lacking. Hey, I'm a woman who prefers to wear a dress so I've limited my pants making in the last couple of years.
I prefer solid color pants. Remember I'm the woman who made five pairs of black lined wool crepe pants. Well the years have not been kind to the linings in those pants. The fashion fabric has lasted no problem...linings well that's another story. So I will be pulling linings out and relining these pants. I've given up on trying to make linings last...it ain't happening so I will go with the flow and put in new ones.
As promised, if anyone creates a garment inspired by something you've seen here, I will feature you on the blog. This week it's Gaylen, who authors the blog, GMarie. Gay had an interview recently and she "interpreted" my Pleasant Purple Dress & Jacket into an awesome dress and jacket of her own.
I think she did an amazing job, don't you!?
It's so dayum cold outside and there's at least 7 or 8" of snow on the ground so you know I'm not leaving the sewing cave until work on Monday morning! Especially since work is only three days next week - yippee!
My daughter will be over tomorrow with the grandbabies to take photos of the completed garments so look for those finished garment posts on the blog next. Here's how they're looking so far...
Finally, may I ask a question? Do you guys visit the Mood Sewing Network blog? I was wondering because my Mood Projects always show up there three or four days prior to appearing on my blog. Also my comrades sew some amazing garments using Mood fabric that you should all see. Anyway, I hope that you will visit the MSN blog on a regular basis - there's some inspiring sewing going on there!
Well I'm out...having some lunch first and then figuring out what to do make while I'm ensconced in my very warm sewing cave!
...as always more later!
