Forgive my absence but I've been sewing around the clock. Mr. Jim and I had to make more gowns for the Chambermusic Ladies, I had a Grandmother-of the Groom ensemble to make---a top and pants to go along with a RTW jacket my client had, and a dance costume needed for an Easter skit at church. Not to mention I'm doing alterations for clients and making my families Easter outfits----dress for my daughter and tie for my Hubby and I originally planned a dress for me. Well this year I decided to do something a little for myself. I think I'll make a cute top instead. Remember the fabric I'm using (see below) is very busy and bold in color. It's a medium weight stretch woven, almost like a sateen. I LOVE it but want to use it in a way that is a little less overpowering. Here's some top ideas I'm considering. I thought about making a cute blouse or even a jacket but I don't want to put the work into a jacket and not be able to wear it often. Anyhow I'm mulling it over and will decide soon. Easter is after all this Sunday. Well I hope all of your sewing projects are going well.
