I got to spend the ENTIRE day in the sewing room!!! That hasn't happened in a very, very long time.
First I finished the pajama pants
Ann from Gorgeous Fabrics. (Thank you Ann for starting this sew along...I needed the push to get these PJ's made since I had originally cut them out in September of last year!!) And then I started on the top, but stopped for a bit to let the collar cool on the tailors ham before I attached it to the neckline of the PJ top.
Wednesday night I re cut the PJ's from the Large that I had original cut back in September 2009 to a Medium, but after trying them on...I think I could have cut the Small. Oh well, they will be extra roomy and comfortable for sleeping and lounging around in.
For the next project after the PJ's are finished I have a deep purple stable knit that I will make another dress and jacket with. I made this same pattern here. I LOVED this dress and jacket and wore it many times but when I was putting all my summer clothes away last weekend and pulling the fall clothes out, it was too big and I wasn't going to be able to alter it to fit..at least the dress. I probably could wear the jacket but the dress armholes were too big along with the rest of the dress. So I decided I would just make a new dress and went to Hancock's the other day. It is actually the same knit I used on the grey dress except it is purple. I know how well this knit washes and dries, so there will be no surprises.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
