For a simple, very easy Vogue pattern, this outfit is taking forever to complete. It is me, not really the pattern. I think sometimes I am becoming too much of a perfectionist again when it comes to clothes I am making and when there is a small fitting thing that makes me unhappy, I start putting the project aside. I then play around with something else or don't go in the sewing room.

Yesterday, DH and I went to Danville on our motorcycle. The morning weather was perfect, nice and cool. Afternoon warmed up but not bad. When we got back home, I could have gone to sewing room but just chilled out in front of the TV. I purchased a Burda WOF Magazine from Natalia on PR and it arrived yesterday. Spent time thumbing through this, imagining what I wanted to make from a few of the patterns that I really liked. Some of which have been reviewed on Pattern Review. After that DH and I watched a movie -Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I admit I am a HP fan of the movies. We have no children so I didn't watch it because the kids wanted to see. The kid in me wanted to see. Having ON DEMAND on our cable TV system makes movie watching a breeze!

No work on the jacket yesterday. I was just too busy with the above.

This AM however, I did hem the jacket and topstitched around front and neck. Only thing left to do is sew buttonholes and the buttons. It will get done today as I am off to the sewing room in the next 15 minutes.
