Spontaneous December sewing plan


Sometimes I think the best anti-pandemic strategy is an outrageous stash of fabric. In line with that, yes, I am lurking Black Friday sales 🙂 My stash is beyond pitiful, like, nothing. Something I can rectify given the help of refund checks from my house closing in Weston, over a year ago!

Last week I visited the much-loved and appreciated Fabric.com, and placed a nice order. I’ve never sewn with much of a plan, I just lie in bed and get hit with an inspiration. So, upcoming:

A Deer & Doe Plantain Tee and Megan Nielson Virginia Leggings combo.

Another Style Arc Elani Tunic ( see last post) , in Robert Kaufman Driftless Insects linen:

And a pattern I’ve had for a couple years, a Katherine Tilton knit jacket, B6253 (search Ebay), with loads of detail, in a mid-weight sweatshirt fleece:

I hope you are all well, staying safe, and embracing hope and each other. Coco

  1. I hope your Thanksgiving was nice. I just read another blog and this blogger made some fabric purchases for Black Friday also. I looked but didn’t buy; I do have a fairly decent fabric stash and hopefully, there will be after Christmas sales. Love all of your new fabrics. Stay safe and a cyber hug from me.

  2. I made the Tilton jacket in a mid-weight quilted fabric that I bought from Marcy Tilton. I don’t remember having any problem with the zipper. I made this years ago when the pattern first came out. I always get compliments when I wear it.

  3. Hi, Coco! I hear you re the planning! I must comment on the Tilton jacket though. I made it once in a lovely mid-weight velour knit and it turned out so heavy I almost can’t wear it! All those gathers and tiers! Also, I found it really difficult to match those gathered seams across the zipper. Just take it slow and baste, baste, baste! My fabric was rather slippery; perhaps you’ll have better luck with yours! I can’t wait to see it.

  4. Thanks I do enjoy reading your posts and have gleaned useful tips a plenty. I am so glad you look after yourself healthwise as all we hear over here is doom and gloom, with your rising case numbers and people not caring for others – lack of soc distancing, mask wearing, etc. Also huge trucks acting as morgues and hospitals at capacity. Hopefully the Thanksgiving holiday doesn’t see another serge! Stay safe. Sam the Aussie

  5. Love the fabric for the Style Arc Elani tunic! Can’t wait to see it when you get it done! My sewing has languished because I have some altering to do – doesn’t seem as interesting/exciting as sewing something new. Happy Thanksgiving, Coco!
