Sometimes the length of time it takes me to complete a project truly amazes me. I actually started working on Vogue 9032 twelve days ago. I am a slow sewer, I am easily distracted by the "Shiny" and the fact that I work 8 hours or more each day. Sometimes there is NO SEWING at all for me during the week because the evenings go by so darned fast. Most evenings my mind is still so focused on happenings of the work day, or the next day, that I cannot wrap my mind around pattern adjustments, cutting or sewing.
Last weekend I constructed the pants front: pocket construction and zipper installation. I found that I was not happy with the topstitching of the front fly, and had planned on removing it and starting over. I am usually 99% accurate with zipper installation, but this one was just a little bit off. I removed the zipper entirely and started from scratch.

As of this writing the pants have been totally basted for try on, and final fitting adjustments have been made. All seams are pressed, and the project is ready for the waistband application. I'd continue to sew this afternoon, but there's a bit of housekeeping that is chronically nagging in my head. Maybe construction will continue tomorrow...
