So I got this tweed awhile ago and I've wanted to make something from it for a time. At first I thought I only had enough for a skirt, but I decided to do a quickie lay out of my repro pattern and I was happy to discover I have enough in spades!
The thing is, I want to make it to wear to a social gathering a week from now.
The other thing is, my freelance gig is really hitting high gear and I don't know if I'll have the time to sit down and work on this jacket. But who said I wasn't a glutton for punishment? Hell, I'm writing this post at 5 am and I haven't even gone to sleep yet!
I think Ill give it a shot. The weather is getting cold, sans the 90 degree temp we are expecting for today, and I've wanted to use my coat making guide as reference for the longest time!
So what the hay!
On another note, I laundered all that vintage rayon I got.
It took well to a bucket soak. It was filthy and only one piece ran.
It was the red flowers from the I believe 30s rayon.
I was kinda bummed because it dimmed the crisp white of the flowers in the print.
But hey, what you gonna do, right? It happens and the fabric is still completely usable so I'm not too down about it.
Well thats it from me, I think i need to go to bed now. I have a long day tomorrow...er, today.
