Fall Projects

Yesterday I cleaned up my sewing room. Here is a photo of unfinished summer projects.
Removing these and putting them back in the storage stash, I then pulled out some fabrics that I want to make up in the next several weeks.
One is this McCall's Jacket. The fabric is a rayon-polyester that looks like a snakeskin. I also want to make the plaid dress but I don't really like plaids so I will make it up in a chocolate brown gabardine. I fell in love with this dress and jacket when I first got my Aug/Sept Vogue Patterns Magazine. In the photo, the boucle fabric does not look like it goes with the golden brown crepe, but in real life it goes with it well.
Today I began the process of cutting out the patterns and beginning the fitting process. It feels good to have some sewing plans again.


  1. Linda, are these things you'll finish yet this year? Or hold to next year? Or, you could move to Arizona and wear them year 'round! Just kidding, I think!

    Nice prints and colors, though.
