When The Cat’s Away…..

My family decided to take advantage of today’s nice weather and go fishing. While they were gone, I managed to wash up the denim for Simplicty 4260 – if all goes well, I’ll cut out the pattern tonight. I also started on Taylor’s Easter jacket (I’ll be making a skirt next).


All the pieces are cut out, interfaced and ready to sew. I also made the organdy ruffle – ugh, such a slippery booger to cut. I even used a rottery cutter and mat! I used my serger to gather the ruffles – so much faster than doing this by machine and pulling the basting threads. Oh, and speaking of interfacing – I ran out and had to go to the store to buy more. Which leads me to my next fabric purchase…..red twill for my Anthropologie jacket knockoff. I did manage to resist buying some denim for the cropped jacket pattern that I picked up – after figuring out the cost (which would have come to $12.00 give or take) I decided I would be better off picking up a Fabric Mart Ralph Lauren denim bundle (which costs $15.00) – I just can’t resist those bundles!
