Hurrah! The oft lauded and praised Jalie 2908 is back in stock at Habithat. So a copy of this pattern is now winging its way to me (or will be soon!). I’ve downloaded the instructions from the Jalie website as I read somewhere that they’re printed on the pattern pieces so this will make life a little simpler.
Now I can happily doodle pocket designs, a la Amy who inspired this whole enterprise! Although my eventual reveal post will not start with a picture of my bum as it’s not as cute as Amy’s and I wouldn’t want to scare/scar you all LOL!
As I had to go thread and zipper shopping in my lunch break today for the two current projects, I took the opportunity to pick up two reels of cadbury’s/liberty purple top stitching thread! I already have some dark gold upholstery thread in my stash, but the purple is unique.
Now all I have to do is decide about the Kenneth King Craftsy Jeanius Course and finish the two far more pressing items of clothing already scheduled. Oh, and stalk Tanit-isis’ blog as she is a master of this pattern!
But first, I really must cut out that back bodice piece and sew the toile of the bodice of my 50th Birthday Party Dress so that I can get on and make the final thing! In fact I really ought to share a little more about this dress with you as I’m quite excited about it! The deadline is Saturday 2 June.
Then of course it’s the Christening Dress which has been frankenpatterned and also needs toile-ing and fitting… That deadline is Sunday 10 Juen. So Jeans wont be happening until mid-June at the earliest. Be prepared for a barrage of jean type questions and general panic when I get to it!
