Ha! I’m committed.
I’ve signed up the Stitch and Flip class that Shannon Gifford of SensibleSewing.com is giving at PatternReview.com. I have wanted to take this class forever but found with prior PR classes that my work schedule would get in the way and I could not follow through. There’s no refund available for being a drop out (heheheheh) although some think there should be especially when most “dropouts” are caused by real life emergencies.
But I’ve jumped in with both feet and the checkbook, so now I’m committed to learning something or losing money. It’s time I learned something.
Well, this time I’m going to carve out my Jacket Time. I can’t take as much time as some to create a wearable jacket and this is supposedly a faster way to produce a lined jacket. I really got to carve out my Jacket Time.
Now I’ve got to chose the pattern and fabric. There’s so many on the want to sew list but the summer heat is addling my brain, no make that addling my will to sew a jacket. I know I’ll love it, I know I’ll need it, I should have the foresight to do this.
Here’s an idea, notice I didn’t say it was the final plan
I’ve planned to sew this for -oh- a few -ahem!- years. I’m rushed for time (as always) and didn’t get the settings right on the camera so let me further illuminate: the fabric is a silk/cotton loosely woven boucle in dark navy, true blue and silver/white. I hope to underline with organza and china silk.
It would get one more thing off the must make list. Now have to do the muslin for the pattern…if Shannon approves it and the fabric.
I am excited!!!
