Black thread now

The first thing I did in the sewing room yesterday was attach a snap to the final outstanding HMC costume brought in by one of my super helpers...and I discovered that I really need to do some more tutorials on Bible costumes; my serger-based ones aren't helping the ladies who have to finish the seams with a conventional machine. I've got one choir-person costume sitting around waiting its turn; I guess I'll be making it up shortly and taking some photos of the process. Let's just say I did a little more on that costume than attaching a snap. ;)

Since I had to change the serger thread anyway, I went ahead and loaded up black when I was done. I'll catch those white shirts later; I was ready to see something finished quick for a change! ;)

About 2 hours later (I did some laundry along with the sewing and didn't really watch the clock) I had a finished Farewell to Arms skirt:

It's embroidered rayon/linen from Hancock's...and I don't care if it is traditionally a summer fabric, I think it rocks with boots! I really, really like that pattern.

The T is Sandra Betzina's Vogue 8151...another pattern I need to use some more ;)


  1. Great outfit! I think the linen would be fine in your climate. You're not trying to block winds that drop the temperature to somewhere around 20 below!

  2. I'm totally with you on that skirt pattern. It's easy to make and it looks terrific. A real keeper!
    (And I LOVE the haircut:))

  3. Wow!

    Great look! What a nice ensemble. Everything really works well together. I also really like your new hair cut.

  4. You look fantastic, Lisa! I love the haircut.

  5. I think it looks great with the boots. You're styling!
