I sort of lost my sewing mojo. Responsibilities at work and home have taken a hold on me. So last night after seeing sheila's jacket I found myself back at my sewing machine.

I worked on the skirt and it's almost done. I cut a3-inch wide bias strips out of the same fabric to make bias binding for the waist and I will finish the hem on the lining tonight. I rip the skirt out three times for one reason or another; this was due to cutting out the wrong patter pieces ( I did not readdddddd). Also the fact that I choose plaid became a little bit of a challenge and top stitching the pleats was time consuming. In the end it turn out to be a very pretty skirt. Pic coming soon. The red jacket, I am not happy with the sleeves; however sheila pointed me in the direction. Also after taking Connie Crawford's class I will be able to improve on the fit. I am going to add a lining to the jacket and who knows I might change the style of sleeve completely.

Something our mojo takes a break. I'm glad to hear that you've gotten some of yours back!
