NewLook (Simplicity) was having a $2.99 sale on patterns and look at what I invested in:
My friend Kimmi once told me that, unlike most people, I actually can pull off the half-jacket. I’ve never forgotten that comment (thanks!) and as I love wearing half-jackets but only have one, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. I also like the coat as well, if I get the perfect fabric I will make that up as well.
While we’re on the subject of half-jackets…. Here are some really cute ones. I also have to cover my shoulders for second-work, so here is a great pattern for some jackets I can make up however I like.
Other sewing projects on the table:
1–A laptop and camera case for my sister
2–Place mats for my mother
3–A dress I am not quite finished with
No, I have not yet made a romper (I don’t have quite the right fabric, and I am trying to make things out of the fabric that I have), but I HAVE made a pair of pants from the shorts/pants pattern, a purse, and am almost done with a dress that came out of the same package as the romper pattern.
I am not certain when I will get time for all of these projects as school starts on Monday (my Senior year of college, ack!) but they will be completed. First I will finish the dress, and then the stuff for Hannah. After that probably the coat. I have no timeline, just a long list. I also have to add my Halloween costume to that–I am going to be a Stingray!!!!!
Have a lovely afternoon,
