Trying to get back in the routine of taking photos for my Photo Journal, and as always it's kind of a pain, yet rewarding at the same time.... so a lot of these photos were drawn from there.
Beginning with... Yep... the Ottobre jacket is still not done... only needs hemming... what is my problem?! Been languishing since last fall...... guess by the time it's all said and done it'll be an 'early' wear for Fall 2020?! ;)

Remember last month when I shared that my friend needed a Mother-of the Groom dress for her upcoming son's wedding? Well she ended up buying a beautiful dress she loved and that fit her perfectly so our attention turned to making a dress for the informal bar-b-que Reception Dinner that would be held in an historic venue. She chose NewLook 6261 and this cute cotton fabric from her stash. We spent a pleasant day altering the flat pattern to fit her 6' body, size 14 with 1" length added to waist, re-work vertical darts, 3" length added below hips, sloping right shoulder adjustment and now to work on fit from hips down. You are looking at 6 hours worth of work, below.... though truth be told.... there was lots of talking and eating going on too. ;)
Happy Sewing All! :)
