I really am working on M6279. On and off at least. Seriously, it's almost done. All I have left to do is sew buttons on and clip a few loose threads and it will be ready for road testing.
Here you can see the topstitching on the sleeve cuff, and the antique metal buttons I chose. I hope to have it done and maybe get some photos tomorrow.
In the meantime, I've been working so slow on this project. My mojo has been playing peek-a-boo with me lately. And what better way to jumpstart the mojo than to buy more fabric?
So yesterday I made a trip to Hancock Fabrics and picked up this pretty, fuchsia "silk look" fabric. I'm pretty sure it's poly, since it was only $4.95/yd and the end of the bolt said it was machine washable. Why they couldn't include the fiber content, I'm not sure. I have Butterick 5638 in mind for it. I've been wanting this color to make the pink view with the wide belt. I had hoped to find a poplin, or something similar, but this fabric might work. We'll see...
I also picked up this linen/rayon/lurex blend. You can't see the silver sparkle in the photo, but it's there. This should be a joy to press, no? Anyway, I'm thinking the wide leg pants from Simplicity 3756, which I have made before with good results.
Of course, I need to finish the trench dress first, and the Burda sheath dress, which, I think it's safe to say, qualifies as a UFO now. If only my mojo will cooperate...
How is your summer sewing going?
