November in Review...

Sewing:

L to R:  Cotton tweed jumper (Lida Baday design), out-of-print (OOP) McCall's 8943; wool crepe dress (Lynn Mizono design), Vogue 1410; refashioned scuba knit skirt, OOP Vogue 8939; yellow cotton knit bathrobe, OOP Simplicity 7417; cotton microwave bowl holders, no pattern used.

The only item on my want-to-make list for November that I didn't get around to sewing were knickers. It's on the back-burner now that I need a new winter coat since I'm too cheap to spring for someone to replace the zipper.

RTW Fast

I will admit that I've found myself at the mall over the month and I have to say that it is getting a lot easier to turn my nose up at RTW especially when looking closely at the labels. With the exception of the scuba knit skirt, all the items I made this month were made in better quality fabrics that I can find in the retail landscape. Sad, but true. There's a whole lot of man-made mystery fabrics out there.
