In my previous post, I gave two truths and one lie. Apparently I am a terrible liar because everyone pretty much guessed that number 3 was a lie. Which, means, unfortunately, that I did eat SO MUCH CHEESECAKE. It was a fun game. I suggest you do it too!
I have however, been keeping myself busy. In the last week of August I found myself making yet another set of the Winter Pajamas. I seriously love this pattern. This time, I used some fancy viking fabric I have been hoarding especially for my little man. I always use some fabric markers and draw on the backside of the clothes I make, a heart or his initials or “I love you” so that it’s easier to get him dressed. You can just see the orange heart I left on the white ribbing this time.
I also made both my brother and husband two test “wearable” muslins of the Thread Theory Henley. The pattern fit perfect on them both with no alterations. Isn’t that CRAZY! It makes me have foolish thoughts about only sewing menswear from here on out. Here he is at dinner today. The neckband was a bit tight because well, I had to scrap together the neckband. It’s wearable for backyard BBQs! He already has me planning a few more in wool jersey for his bike commute to work. I will practice until I get the henley button neckline finish just perfect before using up my expensive merino! Wish I could find it more affordable here, as it’s a staple of fashion in the Pacific Northwest.
Thanks for playing my truth/lie game. I hope you had fun too! If you post one tag me, I would love to play along. I like games!
Today has been an arduous adventure in fitting, of which I will post about tomorrow I think. Wish you all a good night!
PS: Here is a picture of me at the top of the mountain, somewhere in China, about a decade ago. Unfortunately, I have no photographic evidence of my cheesecake.
