Now that this one is out of the work-in-progress pile, I can get started on more seasonal sewing.
Somehow the Winter sewing projects always take longer . . . maybe because the light disappears so early in the day.
Speaking of which, who else is incredibly excited about the time change?
My creative motivation has finally returned, and I am quite sure it has a whole lot to do with the fact that it is no longer dark when I get home from work.
The weather cooperated with me on the day these pictures were taken and was brisk enough to wear a velvet frock, and even pull out a coat that does not see much wear.
Velvet garments with sleeves have a habit of getting twisted around inside outwear, in my experience. This coat does not get a whole lot of use, but with oversized sleeves, it was a good choice.
And now I am definitely putting the velvet away for a few months. Spring has arrived, and I am definitely in the mood for something different!
I could use another lightweight coat . . . but then there is so much printed cotton that is screaming to be made into dresses . . . so many choices, and so many projects to choose from!
