Project Update

Well… my next project is moving along quite nicely. I originally planned to finish draping and drafting the pattern last weekend but it was such a beautiful weekend that I couldn’t resist venturing outside my apartment. The sun was shining so bright, even with all my curtains closed, and the temperature was perfect, a not too-cool not too-warm 76 degrees. Even the breeze was just right, only slightly gusting when the sun shown a tad too long. So, I negotiated with my weekend to-do list and decided that it would be okay if I spent ½ the day draping/drafting and ½ the day just enjoying the day. Although I spent the latter ½ fabric shopping for my project, it was the perfect dose of spontaneity and getting away from a “planned weekend.” So that’s where my project stands as of now. I have draped half the garment and I have bought the fabric, an awesome vintage yellow tweed of Jack’s Fabric store on Fabric’s Row (yes, Jack still works there). I’m excited to keep going. This is going to be a good project, I know it.

    Ooh, I’m so excited for your new shorts!! I can’t seem to figure out the Iris shorts– the fit is just off, and I’m too inexperienced fitting shorts/pants to work out the issues!
