My mother-in-law saw my almost complete jacket on New Year's eve and decided I would be making one for her. Mine fit her except at the shoulders - mine are about 1/2 inch broader, and of course the arms were too long for her. So.. I bought some more of the same black fleece, and another silky for her jacket lining. They've been pre-washed and have been just sitting there on the ironing board for the last two weeks. Why? Because sewing for other people just isn't as much fun! Yes, I want to make this jacket again. Yes, I want to move on to another project (I desperately need jeans!). But with this project in the way, I have no motivation.
So, I have nothing to show right now. I need to find out how to shorten the shoulder seam on a garment with princess seams to the shoulder. I'll probably just wing it, but again, since I'm procrastinating, I'm in no rush.
In other news... I subscribed to Burda World of Fashion (BWOF) magazine on the GLP news site. However, somehow my subscription didn't go through. Now I'm rethinking it completely. I want a subscription, but my only resolution for 2009 was to spend less and save more. Sigh... we'll see what happens.
