One Step Backward
This beautiful silk brocade, satin lining and squishy-wrinkly lapel fabric is going to be a jacket. I made a 'muslin' of the pattern just so it would fit perfectly--wouldn't want to waste the $85 I spent on this fabric!--and when I went to start the project, I COULDN'T FIND THE PATTERN!! I found the package, the cover photo and the parts of the pattern I didn't use but can't find the pieces I need in my size! I looked ALL over my sewing room but, evidently, only the places where it wasn't--LOL!
I will keep looking and I WILL make this jacket even if I have to buy the pattern again. Good thing the fabrics are suited for fall so I have time.
My #8 UFO for June is a pretty easy one: A wall hanging I started probably 2 years ago that says "September". If I recall, I started it in plenty of time-- like JUNE--and finished the top the end of August. Of course, That's where I stopped. All I have to do is pin it and quilt it which will only take a small amount of time. YAY!
