In Sewing News Today...

Can you believe I unknowingly walked into Fabricland right when they had a big 50% off sale. Dangerous situation for a fabric addict like me.

Yes, I did walk over to the wall that had the chocolate brown cotton/spandex knit that I had my eye on for quite some time. And I did take it over to the line-up at the cutting table. It was crazy busy in there, you wouldn't believe the line-ups! Apparently, there are others with fabric addictions.

It was a good thing that there an insane line-up to get yardage cut. It allowed me the opportunity to talk myself out of the purchase I had in my hot little hands. Yes, I managed to escape without any new fabric. It was close though.

As I was in line I started thinking about all the fabric that I have in my stash and am trying to stash bust and then I walked back to the knit fabric section, put the bolt back and returned to the cash line instead. I managed to leave with the items that I went in there for. One spool of dark grey thread for the top-stitching. Another package of pant hooks and if the Vogue patterns were out the latest Marcy Tilton pattern. And the Vogue patterns finally arrived!

I finally have my hands on Vogue 8934, Marcy Tilton's coat pattern. I love this design and the loose fit will be perfect for layering during the Winnipeg winter.

This coat fabric in my stash with plans to make Vogue 1083 for well over a year. Well, those plans changed when I saw this pattern. I think the hemline darts are neat.

I can't wait to try this out. I have no excuse except for the Tim Gunn projects that are waiting to be stitched up. The coat will have to wait a few weeks or more.

How about you, are you thinking about fall/winter sewing projects?

Happy Sewing!

  1. Yay! for you and your willpower! I'm the same, sometimes having to stand waiting in a queue is enough for the thrill of FABRIC! to subside and for common sense to return :)


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
