Now that my to-do list is significantly shorter ... maybe I can finally get that rayon floral tunic finished. The poor thing has been waiting for sleeves and hems. After that I will start on a by-request tunic for my sister. When she visited back in October, she literally went through all of my modern-style (non-costume) patterns and selected Simplicity 2635 view C, in a green. I asked her over the phone if she wanted floral embroidery along the bottom, and she loves that idea. She originally wanted it made from this fabric:
|Green tunic S2371|
|S2705 sleeveless blouse|
|S3677 pirate coat|
I'm actually enjoying sewing for my sister. While she is very specific about what she wants (and has never been shy about stating that either!) she also appreciates it a lot. On top of that, sis will be letting hubby and I "couch surf" and crash at her house when we go up there at the end of the month. It sounds like a fair trade-off to me.
