Sewing and Swearing
That matter being decided, I picked a fall project and jumped in. Of all the jackets I've ever made (and there are many, jackets being one of my favorite things to sew), BWOF 8/06 #108 is oneof my absolute favorites. Of course, the August 2006 issue may be the best Burda magazine of all time, but that's just my opinion.
I've made #108 before in muted green/blue plaid that I bought on vacation in Florence, but I wear it so often, and like the fit so and style so much, I'm making it again, this time in a vibrant orange/gold/brown boucle bought a year or two ago from Gorgeous Fabrics.
Boucle. Lovely stuff, if it doesn't drive you crazy.
This is driving me a bit crazy. There are threads and shreds and fuzzies everywhere, even with block fusing interfacing to the fabric. Everywhere. I'm afraid to look in the machine.
(Never happen, but the fabric doesn't have to know that).

My motto - Suo ergo maledicto - I sew, therefore I swear. In my case, like a drunk sailor.
LOL - I'm still finding boucles dustbunnies in the Craft Lounge 18 months after finishing a coat! But that is some beautiful Octoberish fabric! I applaud your mindset!
Don't take this the wrong way, but I can't look at that boucle without seeing a scratchy 1970s couch! I hope it's nicer in real life, maybe the camera caught its bad side...
Oh and you're totally not alone on loving that Burda issue, I named it The Best Burda Ever a few years ago! ;)
I have a boucle skirt I need to alter(take in)and a smaller size I bought for the fabric to make a matching vest .Your post reminded me of this project in my laundry list of projects..Sounds lie underlining may be a good idea for me too.
