One last time for this pattern, I think. LOL Are you bored with this style yet? I couldn't help it. The truth is, I made the red blouse and purple one at the same time. Sometimes it just easier to make two of the same pattern at once. The fabric is a purple gauge and matched up pretty well with my skirt from Talbot. This shirt is another Closing in the Gaps project. I am finding that sewing with gap busting in mind has been fun. My morning routine has been easy, breezy too! Although, I am not a stickler in regards to following "programs", there are a few unnecessary items that are begging for my attention to sew out of whimsical expression and pure enjoyment. So little time, sigh.
This week I've been less productive than usual. The loss of my iron due to repairs, has been a great loss indeed. While using my old iron, I feel like I am using a "toy" iron compared to the Rowenta. Seams aren't ironing in as crisp. I love ironing while sewing. It makes a HUGE difference in the finished garment. So there may be fewer projects until I get her back. Until then we'll have to make due. Do you like ironing or is it a hassle for you?
Have a Fab Vintage day! I am glad to be back. I won't tell you I dropped my new camera while grabbing my son from harm's way. I am heartbroken over it, but glad everyone is safe!
