Progress of a Sort
Today, I cleaned out the closet — one large bag full of clothes went to the Salvation Army. That leaves one bag to give to friends and one bag of refashion-potential clothing.
I mentioned that I’ve been working on something and here it is:
I got the pattern from this book — remember Custom Couture?
7 short sleeve shirts
1 long sleeve shirt
and 2 sweaters
that need some work. On the plus side, I can do a lot of the hand-sewing in front of the TV. On the negative side, a design this elaborate takes a couple days to stitch.
I still need some bottoms, but I laid out a cargo pant pattern today and realized that I only have enough fabric in denim (which I think looks odd in a cargo style) and military camo, which I don’t want to use in a cargo pant because it’ll look too realistic. I live in an area with a lot of military personnel, and I feel weird about wearing anything that might be mistaken for a uniform, even though I’m pretty sure this fabric design is not the same as any of the armed forces approved prints. Better to save it for a cute jacket or skirt.
I also need a new purse/bag/backpack but after looking at my patterns and fabric stash, I’m thinking I might just buy one.
We’re currently watching a Sanctuary marathon on Chiller network, which is hugely promoting a movie tomorrow night called “Zombie Women of Satan.” Query: who watches these things and why, aside from the bikinis and blood? Did I just answer my own question?
