I'm certain that keeping focused is going to be a theme for me during this whole challenge. Seems like instead of plugging along at the sew list I made a few weeks back, I'm thinking, "Oh! I want to make that. How can I fit it into my Seasonal Sew Wardrobe?" I suppose I should have expected. I know I'm not the only one... How many of us will have stuck to our plans and how many will create a whole new plan as we go? It will be exciting to see where we all end up at the end of the challenge.
I finished both pairs of jeans Friday morning, and wore them all weekend. They came out exactly as I wanted, which makes me very very happy. I find it interesting how I can cut using the same exact pattern, stitch in the exact same way yet come out with 2 different fits. Fabric really does make a difference!
This Week's Goals:
I'm returning to the Fari Coat this week. I've been putting off cutting it out because I'm scared to mess it up. That's just silly! I've worked with harder fabrics/prints so I need to recognize this New Project Anxiety for what it is and get started. I'm going to focus on the large piece print matching and basic lining for now. I'll leave the pocket details, facings and trim, all of which need to be fussy cut to match up with the main pieces, for another week.
- Cut main pieces for Fari Coat (fronts/backs/sleeves/collar)
- Cut interfacing and apply to collar
- Sew main pieces for Fari Coat (fronts/backs/sleeves/collar)
- Cut lining pieces for Fari Coat (fronts/backs/sleeves)
- Sew lining pieces for Fari Coat (fronts/backs/sleeves)
