Hey, I finished a project...that wasn't just a t shirt...made from a recent purchase... in one week.
Neue Mode 21670, made in 2002 from gray rayon/lycra double knit that would no doubt be labeled 'ponte' today. They're old and fit much better when I was 20 lbs lighter, but, hey, under the tunic no one can tell the pockets are gaping, right? ;-)
The tunic...well, it's supposed to be a dress...is Butterick 5244 and hot off the Janome. It's comfy and looks way better than I expected...it may turn into my Christmas day outfit. Who's to know the whole deal is just a glorified sweatsuit anyway, right? ;-)
If you click on the photo to look closer, there is a shadow on it that looks like I dribbled my water at lunch. I didn't ...I've no idea what it is...but the camera battery died so that's the photo I'm stuck with today.
A couple of hours later...Ok, I had to log back in because I wanted to share something...
This morning as we left for church, it was raining and about 42 degrees F. I commented to My Sweet Babboo...'If this were last year, I'd really be wishing I'd have made that trench coat!...but it's THIS year, so I'm wearing the trench coat!'...and I reached into the closet and pulled it out.
I may not have tons of yards out, but having that trench in the 'Done' column is QUITE gratifying!
