Needless to say, there hasn't been a lot else going on. Wednesday was eaten up with Bea watching. Surveillance is specialty around here. No drones needed. Yesterday was the standard farm relief day and off to town for groceries and some socializing. Even humans need to be properly socialized! ;)
A pair of my custom pant pattern was thrown together Weds. morning. These in a summer weight linen rayon blend. The color is interesting, it has an almost lavender hue to the beige. Pretty and will blend well with many things. The cute jacket was completed with bright yellow pearl snaps. I have two Decades of Style patterns cut out that are next in line to be tackled. The salon pants I've done once
but the shaped 1930's capelet is first timer. I have no clue if it will look good on me, but I love the interesting construction and lines.
I picked an inexpensive Brussels Washer for it in a lovely dark olive green oxford cloth look. The pants are in the same fabric just a different color
We have a couple of new patterns to try out by the Tilton clan, Marcy and Katherine.
Marcy's line is still with Vogue but Katherine has moved over to Butterick. I run hot and cold on many of their designs. Some details I love but often find the patterns ridiculously fussy or drafted for some other body than mine. The numerous pieced details can make pattern adjustments difficult and I am never so much in love with them to want to spend the time fitting and refitting them if they are far off. Just lazy I guess. If these work though, both will be fun to wear. The dress of course will be shortened to tunic length.
Parting shot: Grit Nose...Are there truffles out there?
