Just a quickie post before I start my work day.
The holiday yesterday was semi-productive but I got a later start than I wanted to so I didn't get to finish my top. I did, however, finish two purses. I did most of the sewing over the past weekend and only put the finishing touches on the bag on the left. I've decided I'm going to stop making/selling the purses once I'm out of supplies (which is maybe 8-10 more purses). No sense in throwing the supply money away or keeping the stuff in the stash. I can deal with that plan.
After packing up the purses for shipping, I turned my attention to Kwik Sew 3915, View B (the pink top). I bought the pattern mainly for the other view, but you all know how fickle inspiration can be. I used my TNT resized-smaller Ottobre tee for comparison and ended up tracing the Ottobre base with the KS neckline and neckband. I'll do the same thing when I make View A.
I really wanted to have this finished to possibly wear today and had enough "steam" to keep going, but not enough time. It was already after midnight before I knew it and I do need my beauty sleep. ;-) So tonight, I'll insert the sleeves, sew up the sideseams, change threads on the CS machine, and do the hems. I'm leaving work early today for a dental check-up, which should put me home earlier too.
I'm a little wary of the solid color. I don't do many solid color tops and I'm hoping this cotton/lycra fabric doesn't show the bumps I don't want on display. But it perfectly matches the skirt I want to wear it with, so I'm forging ahead.
Parting Shot: Hands up — how many of you have done this too?
