Oh, how I wish a bobbin could have fixed it! I was rear-ended just before Christmas…and I just got a call that my car is repaired and ready for me to pick it up.
I’m OK, the car not so much. I’m so sorry it was damaged – a car is never the same after it gets smacked.
Aggravation. The woman who hit me doesn’t have insurance, so all the costs fall on me. Incredible. I am out about $1200 in insurance deductibles and 3 weeks of car rental. My insurance company is suing her, so I might get some of that back eventually.
On to more pleasant things. I almost got all my 2015 sewing on the blog before year end. But here are a couple more things!
Even though I wasn’t thrilled with my muslin of the Grainline Studio Morris Blazer, I did sew it again, this time in rayon/nylon/spandex ponte. It’s such a cute jacket, and I don’t want to give up on it.
I think it works well with things like the maxi skirt I’m wearing in the pics below. But – I haven’t really worn it. Maybe because I’m in love with my Jalie Cocoon cardi’s.
But I also think I’d like it better with long sleeves. I see another version in my future…
And here’s something I made in August – the Hot Patterns Fast & Fabulous Shirt-Tail T. As with all HP patterns I’ve sewn, the real thing just doesn’t look like the picture.
1- It’s short and the hemline isn’t really a shirt-tail at all.
2 – Check out the sleeve. It supposed to be cuffed, but it won’t stay turned up! Impossible. I used a cotton/rayon jersey knit, which is one of the recommended fabrics. I’m not going to stitch the cuff up, that would look weird and probably lose shape in the wash.
3- That’s not a U-neck!
And now it’s time for a Jungle January alert! Coming soon…
