Hello everyone, Its been a while since i posted anything. Well I felt overwhelmed, I felt like I was spreading myself so thin that nothing was getting done.I looked around and all I saw were the things that need to be done around my home and at work.

My lack of blogging did not prevent me from visiting you guys blog.It has been three months since I sewed. The last thing I made was a pair of black pant. I did not buy any fabrics or patterns in 3 months.

Well, I'm beginning to feel like myself again. This time I plan to take my time and try to not take on more than I can manage. In the past month my husband and I started getting our home ready for the holiday. Thanksgiving dinner will be at my home. We painted the living room, the kitchen was remolded last year, however we had plywood over the cabinets as conter tops. Well, my corian counter tops were installed on Friday.

I am still working on organizing my home and the sewing room. Work in progress.

Photos later.....

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Wearable Muslin I started this coat (wearable muslin) last year as part of the Amazing Coat Sew Along. In the end I got sick with the flu and was unable to meet the deadline. The coat was done, all that was left to do was to hem the coat, add snaps and large button. The alterations to the pattern was documented in my previous post about the coat. Thanks to my sewing sister I worked on the coat last weekend and completed it. I had to wait for my new photographer (daughter) because the hobby was fired. I did a forward thrust shoulder adjustment, and I did not rotate the sleeves cap. The folds in the sleeves were a result of not rotating the sleeves cap. the biceps need mores ease.The armholes were lowered, as you can see I need to adjust the armholes a bit more. This is a great pattern,  I will adjust the pattern because I am planning to make another coat in the near future. 
Even though the coat is a test garment (muslin) I am going to wear it until t…

Butterick 6419 and 5941

My DD attended a spring fling event on April 21. The color for the event was blue, anything blue. She asked me to sew a blouse in blue with a large bow at the neck and palazzo’s pant in silver. She Choose Butterick 6419. I started with pant, the fabric was bought at Joann’s for 19.99/yd. Thank heavens for 50% coupon; I bought 3 yds. There is enough left over to make a blouse. I use my TNT pants (Butterick5941) made a muslin, extended the front crotch length and tweak the fit in the hips. I use the muslin as the pattern to cut the fashion fabric. The fabric took me out of my comfort zone, because of the appearance on the right side (liquid silver) , however, it was a knit and it sewed like butterrrrr. Next was the blouse; I did a muslin, there was minor adjustments in the back because of her narrow back and a swayback. I did not do a swayback adjustment in the muslin, instead I did the adjustment on the fashion fabric when I sewed the center back seam (I learned the technique in a class…
