Clue for next month:
Sponsor: Punk Frockers! Labels and patches
Jenny: I’m having fun with my new one sleeved bodice, but mostly by fabric shopping for outrageous fabrics – like a stretchy foil, crushed velvet, etc. I’ve finally begun to come out of my design/sewing stupor and begun sewing again in the mornings. Mostly gifts – so not as much to talk about.
Beverly: Variation of Hinterland dress in Merchant and Mills large gingham yarn dyed linen, navy/red for my Christmas dress
Anecdote – heard a first time Christmas celebrator refer to it as having a part-time job from mid November until Christmas. I love this, but I think a better analogy is taking a course – you don’t have to keep all semester, but when you don’t, the time before the final sucks!
Style arc has sewing tutorials for many of their patterns. They have been trying to improve their directions, but also want to offer these tutorials to supplement.
This looks right up Jenny’s alley! Long skirt with tie front top, exposing a bit of belly.
An everyday men’s elasticated trouser with front slanted pockets and back patch pockets. Make them with or without a zip.
Jenny : Bupkis. I think I’m likely to make one PJ like dress (secret pajamas) before the season ends – but no promises!
Beverly: pajamas I talked about last week – love them and have been wearing them a lot. Good for lounging too.
