LONG WEEKEND SEWCATION
Well - I guess it's about time to bring this long weekend sewcation to a close.

On Friday after class I came home and worked on my swing jacket and finished it on Sunday. This morning I worked on my sewing class blouse and finished it this afternoon.
I need to find some baby blue fabric to make a blouse to go with this suit. I couldn't find any at Hancock's so I'll have to check at Walmart. The white blouse turned out nice and I really needed one. This pattern was quite easy, so I'm thinking about making another one soon. My next project will be a pair of slacks to match the swing jacket and skirt. So that's about it for the this short sewcation.
