I have been shamefully lacking in the blogging and posting department. I have been very busy with house work and sewing and general homey things. I am very happy and very content with my new position at home.
Mrs. Cartwright and I originally started out to create a zone front jacket for her. However, the fabric, silk velvet, would not cooperate with her original idea and was too limp and the drape too heavy for tailoring. So, we went for plan B… This drawstring Jacket.
My version, with a few alterations per Mrs. Cartwright’s wishes.
The next step is to create a petticoat for her out of a gold striped silk organza.
I hope you all have a lovely rest of you week. I hope to have more to post soon. As for now, I’m adjusting to my new routine and preparing for the Holidays. God Bless!
