Voting has begun in the Sewing Pattern Review Refashion contest. I'm not sure when voting ends, but why not go on over there and vote right now?
And if you vote for me, I'll be tickled pink! Here's a refresher of the shirt I made:
I have a three day weekend this weekend. I'm going to make Simplicity 2508 which is one of those Project Run(a)way patterns with a bazillion variations. I am basically making this coat. It has some really nifty bias details (sleeve tab, back tab, welt). Plus it has raglan sleeves and a collar without a collar stand, so it shouldn't be too difficult (famous last words).
On the left is the lining fabric. It's 100% cotton and has been in stash for at least 2 years. Maybe 3 years. It's not real lining fabric, but so what? On the right is the corduroy fabric. Bought it tonight at Jo-Ann's with a 50% off coupon. Woo!
My neighbor is grilling. In January. I can smell it in my house. I thought something was burning. Then I realized just what was burning. I *hate* that smell!
