Since the jeans contest on PR ends on 15 Feb, I decided to postpone construction of the Jalie jacket until after I complete the contest. I need to assemble the lining, sew on the facings and attach it to the garment.
I cut the fabric for two more pairs of jeans. I wracked my brain for a two days on how to design the pockets. I've got a couple of ideas, but I don't know if I'll have the time to implement them fully. I really want to return to sewing for the SWAP and since we have midterms coming up soon, time might be an issue.
Two more versions of New Look 6648:
I managed to squeak in two more versions of this top. I *love* this pattern. It's my new go-to option when I need a new top. It's really quick to make and very comfortable to wear. Even though I already had plans to make more versions of this pattern, I moved them up in the queue in response to a comment by one of my friends at the rink. He said, "You're looking good as usual...even in last year's clothes."
Ummmmmm....thank you? I laughed so hard when he said that, he probably thought I was a lil' cray-cray.
I used rayon jersey for both tops and didn't bother with gathering the lower hem band. Is it me or do I look a little 'storm-trooper-ish' in the first picture? =)
Ugh. I have to grade papers and do a host of other things. If I manage my time right, I can get a lot done before the football games start today. I'm a die-hard Lions fan, but since they're not in the playoffs I'm rooting for the Giants. After they humiliated the Packers last weekend, I want them to go all the way. Part of me wants to see another Giants-Patriots rematch in the Superbowl. Then again, I cannot stand the Patriots and would do a happy dance if they were eliminated by the Ravens.
Until next time, be well!
