...and I know many others too. I can wait to see
It's been a long dry season off. I so wish this show could run continually.
Guess what? I finally finished my Navy blazer. Seems like it took forever and a day because I started around the 8th of the month. I really thought I'd finish sooner, but a 4 day business trip coupled with 3 nights of work during the last two weeks sort of slowed up my sewing progress bit.
Again this was Butterick 4138, a simple 8 piece pattern that I added a lining to. I made two of this same jacket (but unlined) back in '09 during one of my unselfish seamstress moments. Seems like forever ago. As simple as it is, I really like this jacket a lot - it fits well, and I only had one glitch, (the backwards collar that I did go back and fix). Adding the lining did take more time than I estimated, but now that I've traced off specific lining pieces for the pattern it should save time on the second jacket that I plan to make soon. Next up will be the matching pants for this jacket - it will be the outfit I plan to wear on the first day of school, August 1st.
Have a great week all...
