WIP - Saturday

My niece's birthday is one week away but I won't see her for two weeks, yea, time to finish her birthday present. I have been working on a trench coat from Ottobre, Autumn 2006. I have made wonderful progress and feel this garment will be completed tomorrow. This trench coat even has welt pockets, mine look good but I could use more practice!

Next for her is this skort and t-shirt.
I bought the skirt fabric at Joann's and sent a swatch to my friend Anne, owner of Needle Nook. In today's mail came the perfect match for the shirt and some great trim for the skirt and top. I still need to prewash the t-shirt fabric but other laundry is in line first.
That's all my sewing for now, my younger two, HAVE to go to Old Navy, there is an outfit they would love to have!!!

    Your niece is one lucky girl!

  2. Can't wait to see the coat.

    Don't you love Ann? Everything is so nice and arrives lightning fast.

    I spent my day at Old Navy and the mall (the hellhole Hollister) yesterday. ugh, I'd rather be sewing.

  3. I found your blog recently, and I love that you show your creations!

    Question for you on the Ottobre Design. There designs are so fun, but I just wanted to know how easy their patterns are to use. I am an experienced sewer and have made my own patterns before, so I'm sure I can figure it out.

    Just would love your opinion on whether it was worth it!


  4. Thank you so much for letting me know about your experience with the designs. I love, love last summers childrens designs so I'm at least going to get that one. The summer wardrode awaits! :)
