That’s how I felt about reading your comments on my returning to blogging. I really missed you all, and am happy to be back with you. Stopping blogging was not the right decision, and though it bothered me a bit that it would be silly to resume it after declaring so clearly that I would stop, your comments made me feel so welcome again. THANK YOU!
What am I making? A BWOF jacket from the February 2008 issue, number 105. It’s almost finished, I have to find buttons, so the buttonholes are not done yet. But that’s all (and a good pressing).
It took me forever to cut this jacket, as the fabric is printed only on the right side. The wrong side is solid black, and of course I wanted to match the print as much as possible. And then when I tried the jacket on for the first time, the placement of the motif at bust height is not so lucky ;) I’ll buy a plain scarf in a matching color to wear with it.
I didn’t make a muslin, as the basic draft was absolutely the same as this jacket I made before, and I did the fba on this one exactly the same.
Further I’m working on a the last UFO I had: a pair of grey pants (boringly basic, but I need a few boring basic pair of pants).
After that I hope to make a coat. Saying this not too loud, because I said before I would sew a coat (remember the sew along?) and never got to this.
