Good morning everyone.
Hope you all had a nice weekend. I staied at home and actually worked on sewing! I got the second pack of royal chrome furniture and stowed those in my storage locker, and I got the cool boxes I ordered from House designs earlier in the week.
I'm an ascetics snob, I'll admit it. I love the vintage industrial minimal ascetic, and I try my hardest to make that look shine through in my home.
Here are the white boxes (mind you, not that bad looking) on my computer shelf before I transferred all my modern stuff in the typeface boxes.
Here is the after. I LOVE the look. I even got out some of my DVDs and placed them on the shelf. Why? Not sure, I just opened up the box sets a I was cleaning out my closets.
|There's my Christmas tree!!|
I also started on my quilt!! Super excited about this project! It is going to be great! Too bad I won't have it anywhere near done for this winter. HA!
And I finally, finally began my housecoat. It was cold this weekend.
So cold I broke out the space heater. 45 degree evenings calls for warmth.
I used some wholesale 'wool' that I bought some time ago for this robe. The side panels are a 70's polly-wool blend. I love the drop shoulder and plan on making longer sleeves and pockets from the tan fabric I have left over.
The gather that the pattern calls for at the waist is nice. It will bunch up nicely at the neck from the excess fabric. I plan on making this again and I do think I'll adjust the darts on the back (which I didn't do this time when I graded the pattern).
I love the drop shoulder look of this. I think it will make a nice warm and stylish house coat once I'm done. Right now it's on Onda to hang and after about a day or two I'll iron it out and finish it. I may add a belt or just add a single button closure. I'm getting partial to that type of finish.
Alright all, hope your weekend was as productive as mine, back to the grind!
