RING, RING - TELEPHONE CALL RECEIVED LAST NIGHT...

...FABULOUS
HaHaHa! She's here ya'll!  Let's all turn up!

 Just kidding.  About the only thing I'll be turning up on is this Simplicity 1421 pattern..

  Since the sew-a-long start's on Sunday, I thought I'd go ahead and get all the million pattern pieces separated.  There's a million because the pattern is sized to fit different cup sizes, which is a good thing, but creates more work for me. -  Oh well.
Needed to separate this thing out so as not to confuse myself.

Since it's FABULOUS FRIDAY, my plan is to make a quick (oxymoron because nothing is evah quick) and dirty muslin to check for fit issues before the actual sew-a-long begins.

In the meantime, HAPPY FABULOUS FRIDAY!!!

    1. It was fabulous Kyle - although didn't last very long. Lately I just run out of energy and can't stay up very late. Especially after my mother said "now don't stay up to late".

  4. Friday called me, too, Faye, and said, LET THE SEWING BEGIN! YES! I absolutely love your jacket pattern. When it's done, it's going to be so cute and is going to be a wardrobe workhorse for sure.
