Vogue 7975 wearable muslin
I had not made this pattern before and was leary of using the good fabric I have saved for doing a more labor intensive version of the jacket--I want to use Claire Schaeffer's instructions for finishing a Chanel like jacket. First I needed a pattern that fit. I am not a fan of Vogue patterns because I find the fit to be so hit or miss for me. Using my measurements, I recently made a V 8819 cardigan. Huge. So, this is a size 12 and could be taken in a bit. I will make notes for when I cut the "real" fabric. I hope to finish this tomorrow, but my DGKs are coming to swim, have dinner, and spend the night. They have not slept in this house and it may be a long night with them waking up in unfamiliar surroundings. Let's hope not!
I am proud to say that ALL boxes are unpacked after our move. That is a first! We have moved many times during our almost 44 years of marriage and I usually just wear out with the final boxes. I have been on the hunt for my camera. No luck. DH has a jillion cameras, but I want a simple one that does not require a PhD in photography (or the equivalent) to operate. Hopefully I will be able to find one soon so I can get back to documenting my little projects.
Next project is cleaning up the mess I have made in this room. I'm trying to keep up with the scraps in the new studio ;-)
