The mojo was in light attendance last night. I interfaced the skirt waistbands and that was it. I'll finish up the skirt over the weekend, and hopefully something else too.
So, instead of sewing, I went shopping online before the BMV sale ended. I noticed the New Vogues were in the sale, then off the site. Not nice, IMO, but it's not like I was really going to sew any of the new patterns before the next sale. Instead, I bought some of the items that were on my wishlist, which will be plenty to keep me busy — along with those still in a holding pattern from previous sales. Carolyn will be happy to see that the Rachel skirt was purchased and will be on its way to me. ;-)
Then I headed over to Fabric.com and some sweater knits and lightweight wools for skirts are on their way to me. It's going down to an artic 69 degrees this weekend so I need to be ready.
Previous online shopping from PalmerPletsch.com arrived in my mailbox yesterday, including more interfacing and this DVD. I always enjoy the P/P DVDs and they are so reasonably priced. I'll let you know what I think about this one after I've watched it — hopefully over the weekend.
I rounded out the evening by clearing some too-big pants from my closet. The brown pants second from the top are my wonderful stretch bengaline (from Australia) pants. I'm almost sad they are too big. Bye-bye stretch bengaline. I'll miss you.
I also found a pair of jeans in the closet that fit and I was going to wear them today for Jeans Day at work but I really wanted to wear a belt with them because they are a little loose in the waist. However, in my infinite sewing wisdom, I didn't add belt loops to them. I didn't want to be pulling them up all day, so I'm not wearing them. Maybe I'll add some beltloops over the weekend.
Here's what I wore to work yesterday. The dress is too loose to wear on its own, but with a wide brown belt under the cardi and the neckline Hollywood-taped closed, it works — which means now I have another outfit for a few more weeks, with an added bonus of being really comfortable. I really like this cardi. Some of the sweater knits I just bought may turn into its sisters.
