An uncut pattern that I never did use..
I did make this jacket about fifteen years ago and the fabric was a good choice but the dropped shoulder look is not good on my ski slope shoulders...uncut pattern since I had finally learned about tracing patterns;-) I have fond memories of this one because I was finally learning how careful finishing techniques can make a garment look so sophisticated.
No time to do an end of year review although I do enjoy reading them. Instead my head is spinning with plans for new projects, my sewing room is bursting with pattern pieces marked up and fabric ready for cutting and I am getting so excited about the late January Winchester, VA sewing retreat sponsored by my wonderful American Sewing Guild Northern Virginia chapter. My hotel reservations are made, now it's time to get serious about what projects I will be taking. I'm also packing for two months in Florida this winter now that Mr. Lucky has resigned from his duties as a volunteer ski patroller. He'll be skiing a few times in January but as a customer, not as a patroller. Two months away from my sewing room means I have to think long and hard about projects and pack carefully to have everything I need. More on all of this later. Until then, happy new year to all!
