I got unexpected sewing time over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Here is where I am on the Riveria Boulevard jacket.
Next, I have to make a lining pattern. This fabric definitely needs lining, because it's very scratchy. I"m happy how it's turning out so far. Famous Last Words. I need a vibrant color top to go under it--maybe hot pink or bright coral. I have to attach the collar,make the lining, insert lining and outer collar and attach cuffs. I'll get sewing time later in the week.
Here's a photo of one of my famous T-Shirts. The same pattern I've made since 1974 or so.
The thing is--it fits. I cannot buy a T that fits. I like the shoulder seams to be at the shoulder, not hanging down. I'm small(er) on the top, big on the bottom, so anything I find in RTW that fits on the top is too tight on the rear. This is my basic outfit. For my Elegant Lifestyle.
Tomorrow, I go to the beauty shop to get some red in my hair. Me and Flo, my new companion, the "floater" who took residence in my vision!
I'm 60+years old (don't know how I got here)! I live on an island with my husband. I have a daughter, son-in-law, and 2 grandsons, who are the light of my life.
My grandmother put a needle in my hand when I was 3 years old. I haven't put it down since.
