As parents and kids were shopping for back-to-school supplies this past week, I was shopping for supplies for my Autumn projects. It definitely put me in the back-to-school frame of mind.
First, I bought $76 worth of silk charmeuse and wide stretch lace trim at Mood for my lingerie project. That may sound like a lot, but it all fit in my purse. Easily. Then again, this is enough fabric for 3 pairs of lace panties and 2 silk camis, which would certainly cost more than $76 retail.
This is a beige/nude (shown against a red background so you can see it) 6" wide stretch lace trim that will be made into Jalie #2568 Brazilian hipster panties, which will be my first project. I traced off the pattern last night. More cheeky panties will follow, along with coordinating camis.
Back to school shopping would not be complete without a text book. So, to get ready for the coat sew along, I bought Tailoring: The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket, as a reference.
Finally, I picked up some heavy weight muslin (no picture) at Greenberg and Hammer in the NY Garment District. I still need to purchase my actual fabric and lining for the Lady Grey Coat. So, more on that next week! In the interim, I have pants to sew, panties and lingerie to work on, and I need to trace the Lady Grey pattern. So, I will be quite busy!
Have a great weekend!
