First day at work today, and I'm already ready to fall asleep. Sewing has been on my mind in the past few days, as I was reading reviews about the coat pattern. I've got work cut out for me with that one! I need to go get a tailoring book from the library, I'm really committed to doing things right.
Speaking of doing things right, I've also ordered the dress form on the 31st of December, but I don't think it will arrive for another week or so. I need to order some calico as well. Fabric land is an option, and so is amazon.
In any case, my first plan for the year is to start working on the Meringue skirt from the Colette book. However, I have some alterations in mind as well, as my style is slightly different:
* I plan to remove the hem scallops.
* And add pockets. I'm quite settled on back pockets, but I am considering front pockets too. The front pockets, if I add them, will be scalloped :)
* I'd like to add belt hoops
This is my plan. Not sure how much I'll get done this week though. Oh, and my dungeons & dragons game starts this Sunday. I've got a box full of dragons for the board! Since we're playing the first round at our place, I mean to make cookies, so stay tuned for a recipe!
