It has been a week since I last touched anything in the sewing room. It makes me sad because I want to sew I just can't sit with my injured tailbone and the injured knee doesn't help with this situation. Instead, I've been longingly dreaming about sewing in-between long showers stretching out sore muscles.
If I can sew right now I would make a t-shirt that reads, "stop telling me to stretch, it's my arse that hurts" because if one more non-medical person tells me to stretch I'm going roll my eyes at them and limp away. ~sigh~ I know people mean well, but seriously, do they think they're telling me something I haven't already heard?
Instead, I've managed to shop for future sewing projects. Thank goodness for laptops when laid-up. During the recent Vogue patterns sale I picked up just one pattern. I was tempted by many more but there is only one pattern that fits into my current life-style.
I can't wait until I can get back to sewing as I already have fabric waiting in the wings.
These two stable knits have been in my stash for years, and I think Vogue 9244 will be perfect for this project.
I also picked up some Vogue designer labels. I really want to sew one into my Marcy Tilton coat.
Talking about the coat, I picked up this caplet pattern.
The plan is to make the caplet in a faux fur that I picked up last year. It is the perfect colour match with the coat I recently finished. It will be my first time sewing a fabric with a pile this high. The salesclerk recommends trimming down the pile along the seam allowances. I'm going to have to do some practice sewing first.
I also found this pattern over at Etsy.com, OOP Vogue 9814. I really like the draped front and it can be made in a knit or woven fabric. If I can't sew for the meantime, at least I can dream about sewing.
Well, that is all in sewing news today. Until next time, happy sewing.
