Catalog Sunday

Hi all! Happy February! Just a quick blog update to tell you all where I am in all my craziness.
Things are getting better. I finished a mammoth 6 month project and I feel a weight has been lifted off me. Weeks of 12 hour days on that and now I can focus on all my other things with more vitality.

The NVL patterns are chugging along. I'm scheduling to have the Amy out in a couple weeks quickly followed by another pattern. My acceleration on the repro patters is high now that the other project is over.

Also, I'm going to have some time to sew for myself! Yay! I can't wait to make my 40 year old self some new clothes! With all the skills I feel I've learned from these industry sewing jobs I've been getting, I feel my skill level has just gone higher. It's a great feeling being able to read a garment just by looking at it's construction.

So stay tuned. I'm on fire now!

Also, I have listed a ton of clothes on my Facebook page for sale. Most between $20 and $50. Skirts, blouses, suits, even a wool cape. Check it out.

Okay, now on to Catalog Sunday.
This Sunday it's Spiegel, 1945

  1. Can you share what you have been working on? I'd love to see it. And, oh, those sweaters! I used to be able to find these in vintage shops and thrift stores regularly--now, not so much.

  2. I can't right now, as I signed an NDA. Its an animation project. Way too many 10 hour days at the computer. But it's over now and I feel so much lighter!
