On The Cutting Table

Bret has always called my sewing room a ‘sweat shop’ and this weekend he would be correct. On the cutting table at the moment are all the pieces to numerous “Little Black Dress Aprons” that will be sold to a local shop. While it’s always more fun to sew for myself, I like sewing these aprons up since it can be relaxing (I’ve done them so many times that I no longer have to ‘think’ so much about what I’m doing and can just sew) and it also helps fund some frivolous sewing purchases.

Speaking of frivolous purchases, has anyone tried Bettsy Kingston‘s e-pattern, Action Pants? I stumbled across them the other day and they look fun to make, but they call for a woven material for the panty itself – which I’ve never done. I’m curious as to how they look and how well they fit after they are finished.

Now it’s time to head into the sewing room and do some work before it’s time to take the kids to… Monster Trucks!
