I haven’t completely fallen off the face of the earth project-wise, but I have been diverted. I’m about 2/3 of the way through my Paco Peralta Chaqueta. I ended up putting it down during the holidays. When I got back to it, I wasn’t thinking and I ended up constructing it in a weird order, so now I need to work out a new way of putting the lining to the shell, which has slowed me down. But each and every seam is beautifully pressed!
Oh yes, and I’ve been working kinda crazy hours, which has cut into my sewing time. Have you checked out all the new fabrics over at Gorgeous Fabrics? I’m having a ball putting them up, and I have truckloads more to add. With all the new patterns coming out from McCalls, Vogue, Simplicity et al, I’ve spent tons of time sifting through them and picking ones that will show off the new fabrics best! It’s a blast, but it does chew up a fair amount of time. Ah well, the sacrifices we must make, right?
Speaking of Gorgeous Fabrics…
