Taking forever


That’s how it felt like, it’s not that difficult a jacket and making it much less structured than I would normally do even makes it an relatively easy project. But having our bathroom done meant more than just having no bathroom (yeah for not having to go to the gym for a shower anymore!). I really wanted to finish the coat and accepted the tools of the builders being in my sewing room too. After the coat I was just not in the mood to sew a lot in a limited, messy (especially as it was not my mess) space. Started the jacket and then just knitted more instead of sewing.

But… the collar is done and I do plan to finish it this week, unless I decide to sew me a dress before Christmas, which is sort of in my head but still undecided.

  2. It might seem to be taking forever but I know it will be impeccable!

    PS - on the other hand, a new dress for the New Year .... ?!!

  5. It is looking very good and take your time, this time of year is madness let alone getting your bathroom worked on.

  7. Coming along nicely. But a new dress for Christmas would be nice too :)


Comments are very much appreciated! I read all of them, try to answer the questions but don't always have time to react to comments.
