Wednesday and Thursday the Southwest area of Virginia where I live got hit with a heavy duty snow storm. We got 24 inches of snow. I know many of you in the Northeast region have had more than your share of snow. I have not been able to get out of my neighborhood to go to work yesterday and today.
So I worked from home Thursday-got to love technology. Today was a vacation day of sorts as well as Valentines. My valentine and I spent the day shoveling snow out of our driveway and off of our vehicles. I did get some sewing in today and my February garment of the month is almost complete.
I am pleased with the fit of the top. The extra I added at the bust proved to be unnecessary; reducing the length of the collar was a great idea for me. The fabric, a sweater knit from EOS, has been great to sew. I am almost finished with the top; I only need to hem sleeves and bodice. If I make this again, I will narrow the shoulders about 1/2 inch. It's not bad now but with McCall's patterns the shoulder width is usually a little wide on me.
Photos to follow. I am thinking about my next project-a dress, skirt or another top? So many things I want to sew it is hard to narrow it down. More later.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
