This week I want to talk about the almost finished projects in the sewing room. I have four shirts - all hemmed just waiting for buttons & buttonholes. All buttons in the pictures below are pinned on.
The Brownish/Black Embroidered Shirt
The Angel Shirt
The Purple Reign Polka Dot Shirt
...and with all of that waiting to be finished, what do I do? I start a new project after I said that I was going to sew something simple. This is not a simple project!
Buttons from Pacific Trimmings
So this upcoming weekend will be dedicated to finishing everything. And if the weather is okay, maybe a few pictures.
Like I said I started a new project Sunday evening. It's been awhile since I've used a new pattern and there was a mix of emotions when I pulled that neatly folded pattern paper from the envelope. Some excitement regarding the new sewing journey, a little dread because I knew I would need to make some pattern alterations and a feeling of ahhhh. You know that feeling of calm that comes over you because SEWING! Do you experience that when you start working with a new pattern? Which brings me to the next thing...
The Big4 - Simplicity, Butterick, McCalls and Vogue Patterns have been sold AGAIN. I found out on social media...

Then a follower (thanks Renata!) sent me a link to the article here. Take a read because it's an interesting article and let me know what you think. I tend to agree with Abby about the fate of the Big4.
That's Week Two in Review - a progress report and a discussion of news in the sewing community.
...as always more later!
