My Mojo is working...

I finished an outfit from this New Look (6735) pattern. This is really a nice simple pattern but I did run into some problems with the band around the neck, because I had to enlarge it across the back a little.So, I fixed it by running a center seam down the back tapering it toward the bottom, then splitting open the top part of the neckline and tacking it down. What a goof-up but it turned out OK. I forgot to take a picture of the back after I finished but it looks virtually unnoticeable.
Here a picture of the finished outfit. I see lots of twin sets in my future from this pattern.Up Next...I'm trying to get a really good fitting pair of pants. So today I spent the day cutting out about three different muslins. I'm not even getting close to what I want. No pictures on that adventure yet but I'll be taking pictures and posting on my next attempt. Cross your fingers with me. I don't want to burn out my Mojo on making these pants, I've got far too much I need to make...Spring is coming and I'll need plenty of Mojo for Spring & Summer sewing. More later...

Happy Sewing!!

That's what I get...

Since I complained this is what happened...
I'll never complain over 4-6" of snow again, LOL! I live in a townhouse so I'm waiting for the plowers & shoveler so come along before I even attempt to dig my car out. I was actually without power for a few hours, I woke up to no electricity this morning. Thankfully around 2pm the power came back on, it was beginning to get cold inside. Thank God! So now I can get in my sewing room and get something done. To all of those in this snow storm path, stay warm & safe.

Happy Sewing!

OK, enough already! We are being blanketed with another layer of snow and a promise of even more over the weekend. The only way I'll enjoy the snow is if I get to stay home and sew. Well that's yet to be seen but I've had about enough...

All of you experiencing the same thing stay warm and be careful out there.

Happy Sewing!
