I know, lesson one of sewing projects, make sure you have everything you need before you begin a project. Well, I had to order a busk, didn't have anything here I could use, so until it comes in I'm on hold. This isn't a bad thing because I am addressing a few small projects that I need to do.
Like the shirt I'm almost through with made of a lightweight cotton in a natural color. I'm making it with close fitting sleeves with some decorative stitching on the cuff and on the neck band that will go around the square neckline. It will look something like vines. I'm also making the cuff a button cuff, that way I can learn how to make a button hole on this machine. It's not like my other one which was one step. It doesn't look hard, I just need to practice. I'll post pictures of it when I'm done.
I'm also supposed to hear from the friend about the pants and that will take some time also. If they aren't in by then I can start on the orange gored skirt.
