In Sewing News Today...

There hasn't been much sewing again this week... I'm still working on this dress. It has been taking me forever to finish.


I've already decided that I will never make this dress ever again. The details are driving my crazy. I know it's the details that makes this dress so fabulous. But seriously, eight darts in the bodice lining! Really?   


And I forgot to cut a lining piece for the band that is suppose to go right under the darts. And I don't think I have any more of this fabric left. I'm exhausted by this dress. So it is sitting on the dress form as I move onto something new.

I'm doing a small craft project for the upcoming holiday.


We're in desperate need of some cheerfulness to help fight this deep-freeze and windchill that does not want to quit. I even find it too cold to sew when I come in from outside.

It has been so bone-chilling cold that I cut out another pair of pants using Vogue 1325. It is a heavier weight wool than the other three I have sitting in my closet.


Hopefully, these new pairs will keep me warm through this last stretch of winter.

Happy Sewing! (And stay warm.)
