Thank you so much for all of the wonderful compliments on my coat the last two days. You are all so sweet to take the time to comment. I really appreciate it! I am still in the honeymoon period with my coat, having worn it three days straight and still in love. My eagle eye has not detected any flaws and my body feels super comfy and warm in its sweet embrace.
But now that massive coat endeavor is over, what next? A few posts back when I spoke of how fabric stash is in actuality theoretical clothes, I included my sewing list through the end of the year (I’ll recap again here):
- Knit Jack’s mittens
- Knit Jack’s annual sweater (maybe)
- 6 lined tote bags for gifts
- Finish my fall coat COMPLETED
- 5 kids pj’s for Christmas gifts
- Find, fit and make TNT pants and jacket for a suit POSTPONED — 2011
Now that fall is here, I am yearning for my own sewn clothes to permeate my fall wardrobe. I want tweedy goodness like tweed sheath dresses worn over turtlenecks. How about some suit jackets to mix and match? Maybe a plaid skirt thrown in.
Right now, I am considering the turtlenecks (BWOF 9-2010-121 turtleneck) from one of the last two issues of Burda that Karen made up. And using my B5147 sheath dress pattern for a tweed and maybe a suiting.
Mama needs some clothes!
Oh and I’ll probably get to all the other stuff on the list except for the pants. That project is probably going to be complex like the coat. And I will need a vacation and some wine fortification before trying that. I’m still on the fence about Jack’s sweater. Not sure if there’s enough time.
