Today I set in the sleeves on the wool jacket, working with this wool is so nice. It matches in the front unlike the picture shows, it's just sagging. Now I need to interface the front to give that more body and sew together the lining to insert which means I must put together the jacket all over again....sigh....am I done yet? This jacket has no collar and only one button so not so bad.
I'm so thrilled I won this pattern on My Happy Sewing Place It's a 1933 McCalls and you can check Debi's blog to see what she made with this pattern. I'm thinking of a black velveteen for the top and this skirt pattern below.
First I have to finish up what I've started here and also make the black gaberdine skirt to go with the 40's jacket.
But you ladies who sew know we are always planning ahead with our next project and our next beyond that. It's addicting and thrilling to create clothing. Ah yes I have quite a few patterns lined up and seem to be buying more.
