2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

November 28, 2008

THANK GOD FOR BEING ABLE TO STAY AT HOME...

I thought I'd do a quick post just before I start my next project. Although I didn't announce it beforehand, this is a long totally dedicated sewing weekend. I had to tear myself away from the sewing room to make the sweet potato and broccoli and rice casseroles that I had to take to the Thanksgiving dinner that I was invited to (which by the way was way FAB). I excused myself to come home at a reasonable hour to ... you know what... get back into the sewing room. Soooo I wanted to share what I've worked on thus far this weekend while watching the Macy's parade (and I'm still scoring high on the believe-0-meter if you know what I mean), Miracle on 34th Street, and episodes of the Thorn Birds (there's nothing like my 13" TV in the sewing room, unless it the one in the kitchen).


Next I paired these two patterns together by making the jacket from this vogue pattern and my TNT long sleeved knit top from the Newlook pattern. I made this from a real mystery fabric that I got at Hancock's about a year ago and never could make up my mind what to make with it. I finally decided on pairing these two patterns to use it. Talk about stretchy! I really wanted to ditch this project right in the middle, but figured since I was about half way through it I might as well finish it up. I will wear it, but I will NEVER buy this type of stretchy fabric ever again.

  1. It's so nice to hear you are getting some quality time in sewing. Even though you say you don't like the fabric the top looks great on you.
    I also love the jacket combination. Happy Thanksgiving!
