Quick Update

Not too much going on around here. I did finally finish my "muslin" of the Hot Patterns Great White Shirt. Not white. I tried to overlay it with my SFD blueprint, but I'm still getting the hang of it. I have already made a few alterations to the pattern in anticipation for the next go round. Love the shirt, love the style, love the fabric, and I found PERFECT buttons in my stash that may have been purchased for just this shirt, as the prices for the buttons were obviously from a really LOOOONG time ago! It took me a long time to make this shirt as I went slowly and tried to take care so I would be able to have a perfect TNT long sleeved blouse. Fabric was bought a zillion years ago, and is either a wool challis or maybe even a silk as the printing in the selvage says "Mayar Silk, Inc." I was pretty sure it was a wool challis but now I'm uncertain. Doesn't matter much. It's been washed and dried and already worn.

I also got the fleece topper altered so it fits better now. 

This weekend should be quick and dirty sewing. I have a couple of pair of sweatpants to make, one for me, one for hubster, and I may start the flannel robes I want to make. It's finally getting colder her, and I'm in need. :P}}
After that I'll start my muslin for the Stacey jean jacket. I'm hoping to make at least one version of that before SWAP starts and the rate I've been sewing lately, I'm already behind myself!
If you're in the States, I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. If you're elsewhere, I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
More later!
