Seventeen tracings

Next, adding seam allowances while cutting out in muslin. On the bright side, most of the SEVENTEEN pieces were small and so I was able to use up quite a bit of my "scrap" Swedish Tracing Paper, and then I tossed the rest of the scraps. Now my STP is all nice and neat again. Tomorrow is a day out for the whole family so no more progress until at least Monday.


  1. Congratulations on getting all those pieces traced off. That's my least favorite part!

    I can't wait to see this jacket finished, it's going to look fantastic! Thanks for pointing it out too, I might have missed it otherwise. I also have to say that your pants have turned out beautifully - I'm going to have to remember about using a cute inside facing for mine when I get to making some.

    Have fun today with your family.

  2. Good job! I can't wait to see your jacket come further along. :) Katharine

  3. You sure do have a lot of patience! I hate tracing off patterns.

    This is going to be a cute jacket. I really must resubscribe to Burda WOF (even though it means tracing patterns.)

  4. ohh, you've reminded me that I must, must start tracing/copying my next jacket attempt which I think has almost as many pattern pieces. ugh in a big ugly way


Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
