I like to finish most of my projects using my serger, I think that it gives a ready to wear finish to most of my clothing. However, since I’m currently without a serger, I’ve decided to work on somethng that doesn’t require overlocking – Burda World Of Fashion’s Short Coat.
I had picked the boucle fabric up at Joann’s quite awhile ago in the clearence section of the store (and 50% off of that price). I normally dislike working with boucle, but I think that it will really work with this coat, so I’m willing to put up with it’s down side!
Don’t forget about the Fabric Scrap ContestMelissa from Sew Green Blog has already entered in one item! I’ll be posting a contest gallery as the contest closes so everyone will have a chance to vote on their favorite – so keep those scrap projects coming.
Speaking of contests – Make and Craft have several Halloween contests running. Hack-o-Lantern, a costume, and decorations, gadgets and more, and a trick or treat contests run until Nov. 4, 1:59 p.m. EST and all have different prizes.
