I have decided to join a few things, all starting next month.
The great Coat Sewalong with Marji, and my coat pattern is B4665. I should be able to get a coat sewn in the length of time suggested.
Now is the time for gathering materials, I have the fabric and lining, still need to get fabric to make a muslin.
I have a couple of coats hanging on the rack not finished after a couple of years. I hated the fit on one, the fabric I had one in a draw, mut be six or more years ago now. It was a raincoat and I still think it could be restyled into something else.
The other one was a Vogue coat, in a faux sherpa, probably too hot for this climate even on the coldest of days. The darn thing sheds like a *******, and eveything needs the vacuum run over it, before and after sewing.
The June Capsule wardrobe contest on Stitchers Guild and that requires 4 items that co-ordinate plus an accessory and the only rule is no black.
I just haven’t had too much time to get out fabric and plan. I still need to concentrate on doll making, getting the artist statement and cv together. I ‘ve been having a few problems, glue shows on the polymer clay, can’t seem to make fingers in cloth, the book cover for the artists isn’t doing what I’d envisioned.
