ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Blogger decided to discontinue my template, I guess. So here's the new one.

I spent the last two days cleaning up my sewing space, which always seems to happen in January after the flurry of Christmas sewing. The room is about the size of a large walk-in closet, and it's also where I keep presents, work-related stuff, etc. I'm still struggling with how to store everything. 

I also created an Etsy shop and added some patterns (mostly Vogues).  Planning to put up some back issues of Burda and Threads, and a few pieces of vintage fabric.

Back panel #1 of the Alabama Chanin dress is coming along:


Close up:



It helps (???) that the weather is just about to crap out on us. (I love you, New England, except from January-April.) There's not a lot to do in the evenings except read and binge-watch TV. And sew.

My one concern so far about the dress: The top layer of fabric seems to be contracting a little as I sew. Hope that doesn't affect the finished size. Guess there's only one way to find out...
