Sewing Room Valances
On a happier note we are taking a family trip in September to Prince Edward Island. This is for my 28th wedding anniversary which is actually in August but the tourist season will be over mid-September and rates for everything drops. It makes it much more affordable. But the weather will be cooler in the evening and nights and of course some days. My winter wardrobe is a dis-arrange of items with nothing matching. Normally I could care less except on Sunday, but even that is getting shabby looking ( Dearest told me so). I am one of those mom's, whose family looks fantastic all the time, but I am in 20 year old clothes, no make-up and looking like Cinderella before the ball. I think most mom's can relate. Everything before them, and I have always been that way. The feeling I am not worthy enough to spend the money on.
Well I need to have clothes for this trip. We are camping and doing some Missionary work while there, so it isn't all denim skirts and button down shirts. I need a flexible wardrobe. Good news is I'm in a sewing mode, now that my room is set up and in place to sew.So this afternoon while everyone is outside I scanned the computer for patterns. here are some of my selections. This Vogue pattern is my number one pick. I like the full skirt and the tight jacket. I am also getting this pattern.Because it is romantic and good for a Sunday. Another thought is this pattern, however I'm not totally sold on it yet. I do not like the square neckline on the top, but could make a different top. It is the jacket and skirt I like, love the skirt, but would make it about 2 inches longer. I like this skirt pattern, but something tells me I have something like it here already. Any how, before I buy any patterns I need to look through what I have, and the small amount of fabric I have here as well, and use it up first, then get into the new stuff.
Anyway, that's on my mind this afternoon.
Have a lovely weekend, and use sunscreen!
