Hello and What I Did After My Last Post

Gee, It has been a month since I wrote a post. Life sometimes gets in the way, anyway I did have some sewing related fun. So, here it goes:
 1. After posting about my Christmas quilt and feeling a bit depressed, I decide to start a second quilt. Here is the pic below
2.I completed a second top Simplicity Sew Simple 1639. Here is the pic

I met my dear friend Sheila in Brooklyn the end of June and did a fabric run. Here is a peek of the loot 




On July 1, I went to the Bronx, New York to visit Ms. Louise; mom #2. Before getting to my final destination I stop at Fordham fabrics. I bought 6 yds of Chambray for $1.50/yd. This fabric is awesome, it washes beautiful. Chambray is a fabric that is classic, and durable. 

On July 4th I spent the day relaxing with family. We ate burgers, drank Kool-Aid and watch the soccer game between Columbia and Brazil. My family and I truly enjoy all the world cup games. 

On Saturday July 5, I went to A.C. Moore and somehow the next thing I knew I came home, opened the trunk of my car and three large bags of fabrics were in the trunk. Honestly I don’t even remember going to Jo-Ann’s. Anyway this morning I took pics of the loot and I notice that all the fabrics were $2.00 - $1.50/yd. This is strange? Have this happened to you? LOL! Here is a pic of the loot.

Thank you Sheila. I don't know what happened to your comment. Anyway, I will see you at the museum.
I love all of your fabric choices. They are all drool-worthy!

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

Hello,
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…
