Sewing Whirlwinds Are the Greatest!

Wow, this is my 200th post! How about that?

Well I had a nice sewing whirlwind of a weekend! No homework is the greatest thing ever. Ever! I made no less than 4 garments! And guess what? My damn camera is out of batteries so I have nothin' to show! Yet. Anyhoo, here's what I made:

1. Panties for a custom order. (I can't show these 'cause they're all packed up to be shipped.)
2. My Brown Schoolhouse Tunic (which I love and have worn twice already)
3. A super easy circle skirt for me, a la MADE.
4. A BRA for me!  (Can you believe it?)

I'm also working on Vogue 8546. I've been wanting to make the jacket/cardigan up for quite some time now. When I saw that Debbie was working on it the spark was renewed. I don't have many large pieces of fabric in my stash that would work but I found a crazy double knit from the '70's that was long enough. It's a bright cherry red and kind of obnoxious. I'll post a pic of that too!

After I pick up the li'l mister from school, we're going on a battery run.

Thanks again for your help.
