I had time to run through Hancock's in Daphne today, but I still couldn't decide on fabric for this Kwik Sew jacket (3813) that I want to make for my sister and myself.
It calls for a fleece with an optional overlay of waterproof fabric or some heavy woven. Well, here are the choices in a neutral fleece that could be worn with jeans in my opinion:
And here are the choices in waterproof overlay:
Do you see my dilemma? The picture shows a cute contrasting fabric, but I can't put any of these together. Again, I have no vision, so if you see something good please tell me. (Don't think I missed the gold lame-looking fabric - I already held it up to the fleece - it said, "Hey Babe.")
And I'm still plugging away on the dress - I got the sleeves put in flat (thanks Kid - it feels better to have permission!) and sewed one cuff up. Plus I cut everything else out but the last skirt front. Yeah, I cut some here, sewed a little there, cut a little more, etc. It's ADHD sewing with plenty of fabric. Look how big this dang skirt front is - this is just one side! Other people cut out some of the fullness, but it's a wrap skirt and I don't want to overdo it on my first try and end up flashing the hoo-hah on a windy day.
This took up my entire cutting table - I had to rearrange the rotary boards! Anyway, tomorrow is karate, Scouts, and apparently now Robotics Club, so I see very little sewing in my future. Wasn't it a lovely Monday? (And I actually did 20 minutes of Pilates tonight!)
