Time flies by when there are other things to do.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
I asked my Dad for a lift to the fabric store when they were here over the holidays, because they have a car and it is just so much easier to get there with a car in the winter. I was in need of seam binding and used up a whole package on the hem of the jacket, its sleeves and the skirt. The sleeves are on but I haven't finished the armholes yet.
I have to choose some buttons for this jacket. These are the only buttons I have in my collection that might work but when I asked my Mum, she suggested I cover some with the same fabric. That's a good idea but I don't have any forms for covering, which would mean a trip to the store without the benefit of Dad's car. I think the gold is too gold and the wood buttons don't do much for me. What do you think?
Once I get over this hurdle. then I have to decide what to sew next. I want to make the faux Chanel jacket, especially as I found some pale rose satin that will be perfect for the lining. But I am hoping for a serious job interview and the navy Chanel wool would be perfect for that. Hmm.
