Long intro to say I'm starting that new pattern process with Vogue 1262
Once again, it was a jacket that I tried on at Sandra Betzina's October trunk show and I immediately fell deeply in love with it. I have a large collection of ponte knit up in Baltimore just eager to turn into a few versions of this jacket. But first I have to get through those initial steps. I think I'll fit it here in Florida and then take it back north when I go up for the wonderful January sewing retreat in Winchester, VA.
The Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Sewing Guild just opened registration and my check is already speeding its way northward. I bought my airline ticket this summer and can hardly wait to be amongst the room full of happy stitchers once again. But first, it's time to cut out, mark and make preliminary adjustments here. My mind can get so far ahead of my actual work...... Here's hoping that this new pattern ultimately ends up being a TNT addition to my collection.
Which do you prefer, TNT or new to you pattern sewing?
