Don't tell anyone, but I STILL haven't done the button holes in the Louise Cutting top. Yay, I am the procrastination winner!
Today, however, I altered, traced and cut out the Lisette jacket, Simplicity 2209. I did a forward shoulder adjustment, took some ease out of the sleeve cap, lengthed the sleeve by 3 inches (ape arms!) and lengthened the body by 3 inches (I'm tall!). It still needs to be marked and I probably won't start sewing til later in the week. Still, it's nice to be making some progress. On that anyway... The picture doesn't show the color of the fabric particularly well - it's a black, brown and cream silk noil.
I had barely enough fabric, and since I'm not overly fond of it, I may consider this a (possibly) wearable muslin. As you know, I have my eye on that magenta wool/silk blend at Pacific Fabrics. And I'm looking forward to the fabrics at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup.
Right now, it's time for a delightful snack, and then back to marking the fabric.
I think Mme. Hattie approves of the pattern, but her fretful eyebrow marks make it hard to tell!
