that Burda jacket that I've been meaning to make for 2 years that I'd like to get done while I can still wear 3/4 sleeves. So I've decided that, given how quickly my weeks keep filling up, I'd be better off not putting that additional pressure of another sewing deadline on myself.
So yesterday, I started the dress instead. My plan is to cut out and sew the apron, or at least as much of it as I can, tomorrow after church. I lost last night and this morning to dogsitting, this afternoon to baking with my mom and sis-in-law (apple pies! Yum!) and will be losing tonight to social time, but at least when I was dogsitting I was able to get some jewelry-making done. I don't think the dress will take long to make, especially since it's a knit and so I can sew the seams and finish the edges simultaneously. But I do have to make some changes to the original design, so I'm figuring those out.
This vest will get made, though. I like the idea for the pattern variation too much to not give it a shot, and the dress is already in pieces. I just need to go to Joann's and see if they have some more of that fabric so I have enough to, in the immortal words of Tim Gunn, make it work.
