weeks 364-370

Well, I’ve been busy. Kiddo is still doing online school and his birthday was last Wednesday. I’ve been chipping away at projects but it’s hard to focus on any one thing.

I thought the velvet suit would be finished by now but messed it up completely after altering the armholes, so the sleeves needing some fiddling with and attaching them. Each time they do not fit, because I am overthinking it, so just gave up and bought more fabric last night to redo parts of the jacket because the fabric is starting to get snags from the wear and tear.

At least the pants only need the inside waistband and lining attached then hemmed.

Remember that dress I was struggling with? I think I might turn it into a coat because the front is ugly.

The lining is its own separate dress now. I want to attach some tulle under the skirt half.

Because it’s see through, I’m making a matching slip dress that can be worn under or alone. Need to overstitch around the straps then hem the bottom.

While attempting to make a crown for Dylan, because he turned ten, ended up making two crochet collars.

The actual crown was lace over crochet over ribbon. I sewed the ends together and voilá.

There are other little things I’m doing but mainly focused on these for over the past month.
