Like the title of the post says...I got nuthin! Last weekend I realized that I just couldn't imagine sewing summer clothing in the midst of these dreary, cold, wintry days...so I turned to the internet and purchased a few maxi dresses to take with me to The DR. There was a sale...and since I'm not looking for a perfect fit...I bought the dresses...amazingly they work & fit really well. So that's one thing off my to do list.
My desire to sew seems to have fled. I think since work is crazy retarded and I need to get so many things done before the trip...sewing has fallen to the bottom of my list. I did start another straight lined skirt last weekend...but I didn't finish it because the need to sew is just not that strong.
The skirt is made from a piece of silk/wool blend tweed that I bought during PR Philly Weekend at London Textiles. It was a find from the boxes that we all pawed through and was purchased specifically to make a straight skirt. I added silk organza as an underlining instead of fusing a knit interfacing to the back of the fabric. This is where it stands now...
I don't know if I'll get back to it this weekend because I have to pack and clean but most importantly The Little Prince and his mother are visiting. I want to spend as much time with them as I can...so once again sewing has been relegated to the bottom of the list.
However, I have been fabric shopping and showing no restraint! Somehow knowing that I'm getting my sewing room back and a new, redesigned, more functional room to boot has just let me fabric shop with abandon. I will share the pieces either as they arrive or as I use them.
So that's what I've been up to...and the posts will be scarce again this week since I leave for the DR on Wednesday.
...as always, more later!
