I have had two business trips within a few weeks of each one. It is always great to get home afterwards and spend time with DH and my sewing room.
I decided to wash the lace knit fabric as I am not sure if I had done that prep before; better safe than sorry. I also washed some other knit fabrics that will become something hopefully soon.
I did a final tweak to my pattern fitting adjustments. Once the fabric prep is complete I will cut and sew.
I had hoped that my recent business travel would allow me to visit a fabric store while in the area. With the meeting schedule and terrible flash flood rain thanks to tropical storm coming up from Florida it was just not meant to be. I was so happy to get out of the rain while driving. Traveling Interstate 81 in the Shenandoah area to and from Roanoke and then getting on Interstate 64 going over a high mountain with heavy duty fog is a challenge; especially with all the 18 wheelers plus heavy duty rain creates a more stressful drive. All the driving time gave me an opportunity to listen to music and think about sewing projects.
I wore my recently completed Vogue dress for the first meeting day which also was a travel day. The knit held up well for travel, meetings and then a group dinner. I think I need to take in the sides just a tad more and I did not hem this as deep as the other dress. I am not sure if I like the length or not. I have a black pair of shoes that I call my rainy day black pumps and the heel is a little lower than another pair that I would have worn with the dress. I think I will see how this looks for those shoes before decided to hem it a little shorter.
More sewing updates later.
