Happy Sunday! Today we woke up to snow flying sideways. I hear that Cape Cod got blizzard conditions, and this storm thankfully went east of us, so we didn’t get nailed again. We have about 4 inches of fresh snow, but now the wind is howling. It was a good day to stay inside and sew! Yesterday I cut out Butterick 5678. This is a shoulder-princess seamed shirt. I’m making it from Perky Plaid Stretch Cotton which (can you believe it?) is not sold out! I rarely get to sew with current fabrics, so this is an absolute treat for me. I spent a ton of time yesterday cutting the pattern in a single layer layout to get the plaid placement. Alas, I managed to get distracted with one pair of pieces. I’m not going to say which, and the general (read, non-sewing) public will never notice, but when I started pinning it together, my reaction was very Cartman-esque: (bad language alert)
Well, even with that, I still like it. Here’s a picture of the progress so far on Shelley
More later, happy sewing!
