Slow but steady

Last week I altered the pattern for Simplicity 2374 view C, the sleeveless knit top. I had intended to cut it out during Project Runway, but it didn’t happen – here’s hoping tomorrow’s more congenial than last Thursday.

I also traced and tissue fit the Colette Beignet skirt. The fit was very promising, so a muslin is the next step.

A few more small pieces of fabric have found their way into my stash via the thrift store. This particular store sells fabric in bundles, packaged in clear plastic bags so you’re never quite sure how much of each piece you’re getting, or the exact texture of the textile. It’s like a fabric bundle surprise! As it turned out, most of these pieces aren’t big enough for clothing, so they’ll likely end up as trim or bags or donated back to FabMo.
