New Beginnings!

I had my last interview on Tuesday and then sat on my thumbs waiting for the next interview THIS Tuesday. I had so much nervous energy and pulled out like TEN sewing projects! Hahaha!

I got three sewn and 2 in progress. All patterns I've sewn before with some tweaks. Because I GOT THE JOB!!! the over abundant sewing will slow for a bit. I have just over 5 weeks of intensive training with the current person before she retires.

I'll get these 5 items blogged over the coming days, as I get pictures. The horrific photo quality you see? That's as good as it got today as it is so overcast.


1. Butterick 5760 skirt - mod includes lining. Still needs finishing


2. McCall's 6519 woven pullover top -mod is that I made it in a drapey sweater knit. Still needs finishing


Vogue 9032 pants  - made the view with the pleats. Finished. 


RTW Knockoff top - Love. I may wear this for my first day! Done in a black rayon jersey. Finished.


Butterick 6183 top - made in a woven this time (as intended per the pattern). Done in a pindot cotton poplin. Finished. 



I was certain I would reward myself with new fabric if I got the job...but I'm totally leaning towards jewelry and shoes! I am more excited than I should be about wearing normal (e.g., non safe/comfortable) shoes!

  28. Having worn high heels for years to work, I can so appreciate with you the fact that now I can wear whatever. Sandals and sneaks are summer gear at work and my feet are loving it.

    Congratulations on the job! It's clear you are very bright and work hard so it was only a matter of time and getting the right fit and I knew you would be back to work. Good luck on your new situation. Let us know the dress code!
