Off the Radar and Onto My Cutting Table!!!!
Well that was FAST! In my last post I was obsessing about wanting to make a knit jacket and one trip to Hancock fabric made that a reality! I found the perfect weight white, Ponte knit and Burda patterns were on sale for $2.49. You see what happens when the stars align perfectly! LOLLLLLLL! I specifically wanted a jacket with a very narrow shawl collar and not too many bells and whistles since I sorta want the jacket to be plain. So Burda pattern 8201 fits the bill perfectly!!! Anyhow, looks like I'm getting my jacket for Mother's Day. I'll start working on it tomorrow once I finish some client stuff. Also, in the photo---see that fabric to the right of the pattern and white ponte? Well that's a sneak peek of my Mother's Day dress fabric. It's a gorgeous and bold print cotton knit. I plan to wear the jacket and dress together. That's right, I'm trying to go all out with the cuteness. LOL!!! Mother's day seems like the perfect holiday to do it big. I also have to make something cute for my daughter to wear. Lots to do. Send me good vibes! Hope all your sewing/planning is going well!!!!
