Coming week I will be away for my work but still I would like to take some sewing work with me.
I have few fabrics I have bought to make a Chanel-like jacket. Some of them are silk with cotton or linen. I have bought as well the silk organza for interlining and silk for lining. All is set up. At least 2 fabrics will be transfer to a jacket based on a Vogue pattern 8804 by Claire Shaeffer.
The pattern pieces in size 8 (I checked the ease and I think size 8 will fit better) are already traced on paper and I marked the seam allowances, grain line, notches and all other needed marks .
Now I can easy transfer all pattern pieces on canvas using the Buda wax tracing paper as I have done with a dress based on Marfy pattern. Having this done I will stitch all sewing lines and my canvas pieces will be ready to make a muslin.
Another project is my couture dress. I have already tested this pattern so I can now trace pattern pieces on silk organza and follow further a couture process.
Having these two things ready I will be able to do some hand stitching work next week.
In between I am going to follow-up on Craftsy courses, e.g. Custom Fitting: Back, Neck and Shoulders with Kathleen Cheetham – will be useful while fitting the jacket,
40 Techniques Every Sewer Should Know – Gail Yellen – I can always learn some handy tips,
or Adjust the Bust – the most common adjustment.
Enough to do . I am curious about this classes – the reviews are very positive.
And of course I will update (try to) my web shop with new glass jewellery. I have noticed I have to take few more pictures.
BTW – WIX.com – application I am using to build my website – just added a new functionality – stunning 3D Galleries! Awesome! I am going to try one of them…
