WORK WEAR WEDNESDAY & SEWING UPDATE...

...you can't imagine how good it feels to get back into my sewing realm!  Two projects completed in one week - although they're from the same pattern.  First, Work Wear Wednesday
Red turned out to be just the right color for me and went well with existing self made black slacks.  Red and black is such a winning combination - my red Vogue 9201 and my new black 2017 Jaguar XL.  (Just kidding) $74.000 for a car is a deal breaker for me (hahaha).


Nothing like a little fun...
Sewing Update:  As I said, two projects completed this week.  A repeat of Vogue 9204
 It was a little tricky sewing this Ditzy Silk that's actually 100% polyester - it was silky smooth, but quite slippery and did not press well at all - but I made it through.  Now I can file this pattern away for a while and move onward with my next project.

SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION TIP:  You might already know, but just in case you don't, always sew with the sleeve down - next to the feed dogs.  The feed dogs actually help to ease in extra fullness while sewing...

  8. Love your red blouse! It looks wonderful on you! The patterned one is pretty, too, but not nearly as fun. It is a very figure flattering style. Very nice work!

  13. Look at your sassy self...your outfit is really a good fit for you as well as your new ride. And since you are going to make a trip you can come one down here to Texas and pick me up for a road trip too. Good tip did not know.
