The ASG meetings I attend always include a “what was I thinking?” table – for oddments of patterns, pieces of unused material, etc. On my first jaunt through, I picked up a cape pattern. I wasn’t sure what I’d do with it, then realized that a cape would be the perfect solution for a warm winter jacket for young ladies who grew 4″ this last year.
Christmas is over, and therefore Christmas Sewing is over. (I had a bit more I could have sewn up, but I didn’t, and now I don’t have to. Yay!) I’m more than a tad fidgety. Time to pop open the pattern and tissue fit… oh. The pattern is missing some key pieces. Yes, I did say I was up for some pattern drafting this year. I wasn’t talking about THIS! :p (It was missing the front and the back).
I’ve already bought the fabric. Hm. And I don’t really want to make a real coat for her, because why go to all that time and expense for something that will only last a year. Hm.
Now, to get to the fabric store and pick it up……………….
(This is a simpler cape, which is a bonus).
