My Weekend Was Sew Challenging
I did a lot of reading this week, specifically on Bagging a Lining. I read Thread's article on Kenneth D. King's lining method, Thread's Jackets, Coats & Suits article on Jacket Lining Made Easy, Palmer/Pletsch's Jackets for Real People, and more reading. It seemed the more I read, the more confused I became and by Friday nite I'd overwhelmed my brain on the topic. At one point I decided I would move on from my Jacket project, feeling that I'd taken on a project that I was not ready for.
Saturday morning, as I browsed through my patterns for a new project, I eyeballed the jacket and thought sheesh, if I can't finish that jacket what the heck will I do with another project that is challenging. I pulled out my Jacket DvD and no kidding, I must have watched it at least a dozen times until something clicked...lol.
I literally closed myself in my room and dug into getting that lining into that Jacket. Carolyn suggested that I use a lining that was slippery. So Friday I stopped at a fabric store and checked out lining fabric, but my brain was in overkill mode and I just walked out. As I headed home I decided that since I'd cut fabric for the lining already and with all the indecisiveness going on about the project, it would be best to work with it if and when I learn the lining method. After this escapade I will be loading up on lining fabric. Thanks!! Carolyn for your help.
Here was my Saturday Itinerary:
MidnightI am totally exhausted....lol.
