I handed off the pirate shirt to the costumer and she asked me if I could manage to make a second one by the weekend. I can . . . but I'd rather sew for me.
I want to finish my poppy dress, which I'm really excited about. Since spring won't stay sprung, I want another pair of work pants, and there's some charcoal gray RPL on the work table just waiting to be cut up. (Plus I have a skirt idea marinating that would use up every scrap of the leftover fabric - how economical).
And I just received the 0189 Mantle from the 1912 Project, and I'm surprisingly into that pattern. I found two perfect fabrics for it, an embroidered/sequined brown crinkled taffeta-ish fabric from our Paris vacation in 2008 and a coordinating copper fabric for the trim and the lining. I'd like to start working on it yesterday, because this is something that doesn't even need updating - I can see wearing that jacket, as drafted, in a variety of ways. And it's 2 whole pattern pieces - a front/sleeve/back combo (cut 2) and an underarm gusset.

Maybe I'll take the fabric and some pins to work tomorrow and I'll cut fabric on the conference room table. Most of them already think I'm crazy; I may as well convince them once and for all.
