1. The Marie Skirt: I'm happy to say that it is now complete! I just need to put together an outfit and take some pictures to show it off
2. Finishing up my knit cowl: So close! Maybe this weekend if I get some heavy tv watching in.
3. Busting through my stash! This, my friends, is what I worked on tonight.
I had some extra fabric set aside that I had used as lining in my Rooibos dress. I had just enough to reuse an Amy Butler pattern. I had previously made the Lotus dress, but the pattern also came with the option to do a tunic and cami. I had just enough fabric to whip together the Lotus cami. I thought it would also be good practice in button construction as I will have quite a few to add in my Spring wardrobe.
The pattern has been flying along with the only hiccup coming in the installation of my last buttonhole. Somehow I jammed my machine and am stuck seam ripping out the hole for the second time. I don't mind (too much) as I still need to pick up buttons for the tunic, so I wasn't really in a hurry to finish it.
|The buttonholes that didn't give me grief|
I think I'll be able to pick up some buttons by the end of this week, and have this top all ready to wear after the weekend. Additional good news: my fabrics have shipped! Fingers crossed that I get those before the weekend too, but I have enough projects to keep me busy if they don't.
