Month End Review - November 2010

November was productive, though I don't have many things to show you here.

November marked my victory over the dreaded welt pocket, a foe who has skulked in the corners of my workroom for years, striking fear into my heart and sewing machine. Take that, welt pockets. You are history.

My plaid jacket, BWOF 1/2008 #127, is definitely one of my favorite pieces for the year, mostly because of the pockets and bound buttonholes, but also because I love the combination of the plaid with the leather and the red lining. It makes me happy just looking at it.

My most recent project is the BWOF baby dress for my co-worker's soon-to-be-baby. Quick, cute and just what I wanted to give.

I also filled a hole in the wardrobe this month by making myself a black 10-gore skirt from an old Ottobre issue (can't find it now to figure out which one it was). I needed a longer, fuller black skirt, and that fit the bill.

Craft show sewing is also history - I finished 11 more pieces in November. Glad to be done with sewing for the show, but looking forward to the proceeds which can be invested in new fabric in 2011.

Last but not least, I made 2 partial muslins for my soon-to-be-dress. I've got the bodice where I want it now, so maybe next up I'll explain what I started with and where it ended up.
