I am going to take the position as Asst Principal at a local elementary school. I'll wear the clothes I've been making and feel as though my time and expertise may benefit others. The pay is NOT the incentive, believe me. LOL>
I cut out the lining for the Burda jacket and will try to get the "big pieces" together before tomorrow night. I think I need to order some Petersham ribbon and maybe some black trim to finish it off...that is, if it fits! I put the sleeveless outer fabric on the dressform I made last summer. It seems to be OK fitwise, so I shall go forward!
The fabric is a rayon/wool blend from Melody at Fashionista Fabrics--it is really pretty but very fragile as well. Hope it holds together well enough to get the jacket finished.
