rain, rain don't go away
We finally got some much needed rain here in California. It's been so long that I actually found the blustery sky a bit mesmerizing and distracting today.
But despite the distraction of stormy weather, I managed to start in on my next sewing project, a blouse from Butterick Pattern B5678. To challenge myself, (and because I love the fabric) I am going to sew it from a cotton/lycra jersey fabric.
I could tell right away that it was going to take a bit more time, because even laying the fabric out flat and straight was slow and difficult due to it being so stretchy.
And as I cut the pieces, the fabric would curl up... just another small challenge.
But I got it all cut out, sewing marks and notches made, buttons chosen, and interfacing ironed in. Ideally, next Monday I can just turn on my serger and start sewing.
