Progress (or more specifically, the lack there of)

This Sunday was my baby girl's baptism, and so little sewing happened for well over a week.  I am hoping to finish the purple jacket this week.  More this weekend.....

Alessia is learning to sleep swaddled in a swing, which means I've done a bit of hand sewing lately.  I slip stitched the lining to the body of the purple jacket, and I sewed up the hem.  I need to attach the closures and turn up the cuffs.  I'll have photos this weekend. Yeah!

In Progress

I have managed to get some work done recently.  I'm slip stitching the sleeves of the purple jacket closed and have ironed up the hem. I also resewed the areas where the sleeve seams meet the body seams so that they don't pucker any more. There are no pics.  No excuses.  I just haven't gotten my act together enough to do it.

I also dug out an old skirt that my husband bought me in Cambodia some years ago.  It's a straight wrap skirt.  I've never worn it, because I don't like straight cut skirts, but I do take it out every now and then and touch the lovely decorative band across the hem.  I'm thinking of making a pair of loose yoga pants (from the Sew Everything Workshop book) and using the decorative band from the skirt.
