Hello everyone. Hope you all had a good weekend and your week is off to a good start. It's hard to believe tomorrow is already Wednesday. Yikes! I have been working on bags for the shop these past few days. I really love making these and love the process of coming up with print and color combinations. But it's time to tear myself away from that, because fashion sewing is calling my name again, and I feel a hankering for a comfy outfit. I will be using New Look 6189, which is an older pattern. I will be making the short skirt and the short hooded jacket. I have some doubleknit, called Gila Nutmeg, from Vogue Fabrics. I can't wait to sew with this fabric. I've been encouraged reading other's reviews of how easy it is to work with. I'd actually like to make the long skirt version too, but I don't have enough of this color. I'll have to keep my eyes open for another fabric in the future. Perhaps a french terry or a two-sided knit would be nice.
