I just realized I haven't posted about my projects in several days. That is NOT, however, because I'm not sewing - it's because I'm not finishing! I've got a reversible zipper hoodie in the works for my biggest (little) man, but I'm waiting on fabric. He's obsessed with hot wheels and all things cars, so he requested the black Echino car fabric for his hoodie. I've only got it in purple, so we wait.
I also cut another baby-in-the-hood jacket for my littlest man. This one will be mainly navy corduroy, but the lining and hood stripe will be some adorable Anne Kelle fabric from Fabric Shoppe.
I'm also working on a pea coat for my middle man. It still needs buttons and some hand stitching on the sleeve cuffs and back of the coat. Here are some in-progress shots:
I'm using the most exquisite wool blend from my favorite local fabric store for the outer coat. Seriously, I've never sewn with a more lovely fabric. LOVE it. The lining - not so much. It's adorable, and I want to love it, but it is really stiff and doesn't rebound well from pinning. I can see every place I put a pin in that fabric! I'm a bit sad about it.
I've also got a stack (7 pairs) of little man pants just waiting for hems in my sewing room. So, fo the next week or so, I'll be wrapping up what I started during the KCWC. Thanks so much to elsie marley for hosting!
