Lost Some of My Momentum but...

It's been a while. I lost some of my momentum while making the McCalls 5525 trench coat. Not having the buttons created an obstacle that was such a downer and then I lost the last page of the pattern instructions! Now I'm back on track with thanks mostly to Lynn of You sew, girl. She is such a sweet and thoughtful person and an excellent sewist. If I had a younger, sassy and beautiful sister...it would be her. She found the buttons for me and I can't thank her enough. I hope to finish the coat by the end of the week. Here is where it now stands. I just sewed the lining and facing on and it hasn't been pressed. Don't judge me!


My funk didn't stop me from sewing for my Barbies. Their wardrobe is increasing by leaps and bounds with no look of slowing up on the horizon!

  1. Hey lady. The trench coat is coming along nicely. And you are killin' me with the Barbies. I started sewing for Barbie at age ten. Cute.

    1. Cennetta I've been obsessed with sewing doll clothes since the end of last year. I've sewn them in the past but after a few days the dolls would be put back into the "Barbie vault" where'd they'd stay for 5-10 years! Now there are Barbies all over the house! I can't believe the husband hasn't even complained!

  2. I look forward to your coat completion and each Barbie wardrobe addition, too. I have the pattern and a piece of fabric from Emma One Sock for my rendition. If you need a copy of the instructions, let me know....I'd be glad to send it to you!
