What's happening and what nots!



    So my little people are out of school next week for the Thanksgiving holiday. So knowing this would free up a little of my time, I decided to get a few things cut out, and even managed to complete a shirt,well almost.. I started on B5678 sometime last week. And for me shirts is one piece of clothing that I must continue to practice. Shirt making is not hard in essence but everything is so precise, ya know?!


I made view D minus the pockets. I'd planned to put the pockets on, and I did; however, they came out horrid, simply horrid! The pockets to me just looked too big, but on others who've reviewed this pattern they looked great! So I'm sure there was operator error there on my part, sigh.. All that's left to do is the button holes and buttons and of course a good pressing is in need...

Here's a sneaky peak:My topstitching
is not perfect but I'll somehow manage
to live LOL!

  Yesterday I was in the cutting mood, when does that ever happen, right?! That is the worst part of sewing to me, geesh! Well, like I was saying I was in the cutting mood yesterday, and I also managed to get V8927 cut out woo hoo!




  I cut out view F in the Vogue 8927 pattern. I did alter the pattern as to shorten it a bit, but we'll chat again about this pattern once this project gets going hopefully.. I know that I said last time that I was going to start on V8958 once I received my interfacing, which I have; however, I have shirts on the brain. I really need more tops and I'm trying to be a responsible seamstress here and sew more of what I need, than what I want boo hoo LOL! And speaking of more of what I need, right?! I've received a few pretties this month, and nope I don't feel no ways guilty bahahaha!  I am giving back to our economy, yep that's my story and I'm sticking to it lol!
This cobalt blue suiting on the left is everything, everything! It's from
Fabricmart (SKU: BKC2422G) and it is gawjus, don't say I didn't warn you!

 Whew, this post is getting long! I guess I better get crackin' on these shirts so that I can get to sew up some of my pretties that came in.. What are y'all working on this weekend? Anyone planning to hit the Jo-Ann's sale for the Butterick and Vogue sale? I know there are four patterns, two from each that I want. I better get my list ready... I hope you ladies have a wonderful weekend!
