Choir Sundays Heads into 2009

I took my camera to church today, but things were kinda hectic and I didn't get a 'group photo'. Hopefully next week!

Anyway, this month's colors are royal blue and black.
The top is the silk duppioni Sewing Workshop Chopin Blouse that took forever and was a comedy of errors (remember the piece that I threw away?). But it works great for choir and I love the way that silk feels on...heaven!

The pants are hot-off-the-sewing-machine La Fred Daphne Pants, made from a scrumptious cotton/lycra sateen from Gorgeous Fabrics. I still need to tweek the pants a bit; this is the third iteration and I'd like to be closer to a TNT than I am. But, perhaps the *ahem* excess of the holidays might account for a bit of that? Not sure...but, they work as a bottom layer under a long top, which is what I wanted them for.

I had to have My Sweet Baboo take the photo on the porch as the inside of the house is a maze of half-down Christmas decorations and boxes. That's one chore I'm always relieved to finish.

I really, really need a black turtleneck top; I've got fabric and a pattern, if I can make it today I'll count it for '08 as intended, otherwise I'll be done where I am. We'll see how the rest of the day goes!


  1. Now THAT is a gorgeous blouse. Silk dupioni in royal blue. What a fabulous combination. You look like a dream in that color. Can't wait to see the turtleneck! I'm actually thinking of buying a serger! Be afraid, be very afraid! Maybe if I do get a serger I will overcome my terror of sewing with knits. Or maybe not. Good luck with the Christmas decorations!

  2. Oh, by the way: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

  3. Yay! Return of the choir outfits. Happy New Year!
