The closet in my basement, appropriately named Area 51, is overflowing with UFOs and is long overdue for intervention. A few weeks ago, Audrey at Sew ReInvented Audrey! posted updates on several newly completed unfinished objects. Was I inspired? Yes. Did I act on said inspiration? Not so much.
I cannot cut out another project until I have completed the SEVEN projects that are already in motion. SMH
In no particular order, here is the list of current aliens and what they need to be sent home:
Colette Patterns Beignet (wool skirt)
I had the pieces to this skirt cut out for TWO years and am just now getting back to it. To finish, I need to fuse interfacing to facings, insert the lining, mark and make 12 buttonholes, and hand sew 12 buttons. It's the buttonholes/buttons that dragging this one on. I know it.
Simplicity 2648 (wool dress)
I started this dress at least as long ago as the Beignet skirt. The only thing I need to do is insert the zipper that's PINNED to the dress. So sad.
Simplicity 1945 (rayon cowl neck top)
I made a quick muslin to see if I liked the fit of this top weeks ago. Later, I cut out the actual garment but stopped (for some unknown reason) before I cut out the cowl.
Jalie 2559 (RPL stretch woven jacket)
I'm blaming this alien on the lining. Stretch polyester charmeuse is the devil's spawn. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Vogue 8426 (denim skirt)
I was going to cut out another pair of jeans but since my fabric wasn't wide enough to accommodate all of the pieces, I cut out this skirt instead.
Simplicity 2804 (ITY knit top)
Cut. Marked. Just waiting to be serged.
Cut. Marked. Just waiting to be sewn and serged.
There are definitely other UFOs hiding out in Area 51. But this is all I can handle right now.
