I will admit that I almost fell off the ready-to-wear (RTW) fast a week ago when I spotted an ankle length wool sweater coat at Winners. Almost. My will power failed me in the fabric store. I picked up the quilting fabric for Mama R's new apron when clearance fabrics were marked down an additional 50% off. My bad. There were some others that made it into the fabric stash. Oh and there was lovely silk satin to line a jacket for Mama R. I'll try again next month.

National Sewing Month begins tomorrow and the theme is to sew for the beauty of it. I have quite a bit of sewing to do for my beautiful Mom. She wants a new jacket in black. I have a lovely napped wool fabric set aside for that project and splurged on some silk lining. And then she would like another dress in a navy satin back crepe. There is an Eva dress to make for a friend. For myself I would really like to concentrate on sewing some comfortable pieces of sleepwear. I'll see how these plans work out.
