A New Suit and The Rocking Horse
Adele and Mike are due back soon. They just recently closed on their house in Chicago. They should be arriving in town within the next two weeks. In the midst of packing and house closing, Adele squeezed in a little shopping. She needed a few more items for her teacher job.
The Insomnia line is growing. Throughout the night, I managed to sew Adele a three piece outfit.
I am not calling it a suit because I made the jacket bigger than a suit jacket. I will make another suit jacket and use this jacket with some jeans. For now, it will work just fine with her skirt.
I made a cute little wrap blouse. The sleeves are 3/4 length on Adele because I used my fashionista doll to measure the sleeves. Ooops. It still works.
If you recall, I made a skirt from this fabric a couple of months ago. I thought about using it with the jacket and shirt, but decided to whip up a new skirt instead. Shocked me, too. I like the design of this skirt better than the other one.
I'm thinking about adding a belt to this jacket.
I'm feeling like my sewing mojo is slowly coming back.
The girls really want Shay to get out of the rocker so they can ride.
