I got my fabricmartfabrics order in of this lovely wool blend sweater knit.
(I'm sorry it was a great deal I couldn't pass it up)
And I got a nude colored lycra as part of one of their bundles (I love these things - it's like fabric Christmas http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Bundled-Assortments/)
So I'm making two items from McCall's 6658 - the sweater from the knit and a tank from the Lycra. The tank I figure I can wear under thin items for modesty and for warmth.
I'm also planning on rolling through my pants fitting class on Craftsy http://www.craftsy.com/class/pant-fitting-techniques and making a wearable muslin from some ugly crepe suiting that I have and FINALLY learn to make/fit pants.
On top of that I'm going to do the Albion Sew-a-Long http://www.sewalongs.com/albion
and I want to make another fireside bowl bag for my daughter, and I'm making the next bag in that sew along (called the go-go bag) using scraps from the zebra print coat that I didn't get to finish last month :D
PLUS... the Marfy sew-a-long continues with the Marfy skirt. And there's a vintage pattern sew-a-long that I want to participate in so that I can use some of my vintage patterns at LAST.
So, what I have gotten done so far.
My go-go bag is cut out, but I need to buy some interfacing - then that will be ready to sew.
I've got my fabric cut for the tank and the pattern pieces rough cut for the sweater of the Mccall's pattern.
I have printed and taped the Marfy pattern and the Albion pattern.
I've watched the craftsy course all the way through so I know what I'm getting into there...
And all my fabrics are pre-treated (washed etc) so I can cut into those right away.
Lastly I just HAVE to to share this amazing fabric that arrived today. I can't pass up a bargain so when I saw this on clearance...
Yes, it's a red liquid lame... I had to buy it. I see a Jessica Rabbit dress in my future. Just not this month :D
(P.S. the Zebra coat is on hold - I need to buy more fabric for it - I cut the front pieces wrong and I don't have enough fabric to recut)
