The yearly blogger, that’s who I am.
SWAP time once again people! Planning on taking part, as usual, but snafus abound. I have not sewn a single thing yet! I am procrastinating. Once I get going I’ll have some momentum, but right now I am stuck.
We moved last month, and we are still boxed in. There are a number of things in my sewing area that have nothing to do with sewing, and I don’t really know where to put them. That is barrier number one.
I am planning to start with Vogue 8859, in a very stretchy brown ponte (I think it is ponte, I got it from SR Harris, so who knows) and I am really unsure of the proper size, I’ll also have to shorten the rise, probably the thigh, and the lower leg, and take in a wedge from the back (I always have to do this with pants.) Paralyzed by all of that. Plus I think I cut out a size too large. Plus there are some pleating details that will not work with this ponte as it is rather thick, so I’ll have to eliminate them too. A lot of pattern manipulation when really I would just rather cut and sew. Impatient. So instead I am doing nothing. Barrier number two.
And, Stitcher’s Guild is down, has been for weeks. I have no motivating posts to read. Barrier number 3.
I’ll get started tomorrow though, I promise. May even have some pictures to post!
The chevron is a very loose knit that I am considering turning into a t-shirt dress, or a tank dress. I was originally planning a cardigan, but it keeps whispering “Dress.” So a dress it will probably be.
