Thank you for all the nice comments on the dress yesterday. Like Carolyn, I'm a comment 'ho and, well, keep 'em coming. ;-) (And Carolyn — you haven't updated your blog in ELEVEN days … I'm just sayin' …)
I didn't spend a lot of time in the sewing room yesterday, but I did pull out some knit scraps and cut some new panties. I'm overdue, but no one sees 'em so it hasn't been a big priority.
I cut out 6 pairs (2 of the blue). I'm using poly knit scraps this time for the silky and "firming" factors. Think Spanx-lite.
It's apparently still not a big priority because that's as far as I got. After perusing my "on deck" pattern basket last night, I set them aside for a while, in favor of …
…this! The print will be a remake of Butterick 4818. Which is this jacket below, one of my favorite things ever that I've made. The alterations are already done from the first make so I should be able to just cut and sew. Fingers crossed.
The solid is a knit, which will be a gored skirt. At least that's the current plan. Always subject to change, of course.
I was reminded in the comments yesterday that it would've been pointless to vacuum, what with the Rapture and impending end of the world. I didn't need my arm twisted, so my sewing room floor still looks like this. But I'm going to enjoy the prerogative to leave a dedicated sewing room floor messy because I probably won't have a separate sewing room once I move to an apartment. You win some, you lose some, right?
