Once again, re-prioritizing my sewing. Since Simplicity 4727 took so much longer than I anticipated, my projects have telescoped and I have to move some around.
1. Reenacting dress - my brown flannel reenacting dress really is trying to die. It's only been twenty-one years, right? Anyway, I need it for November 10 and at least one of the weekends before now and then will be totally occupied with an out-of-town trip, so I have to come up with something easy and fast. Accuracy is not the name of the game, exactly, but I don't want it to be too Eighties. More on this in a little bit.
2. Hollywood 1191 (1943) - still trying to get around to that housecoat.
3. Simplicity 4727 (1943) - the real version. I'm sick of looking at that bloody plaid fabric. It's like it's mocking me.
4. Simplicity 4718 (1943) - winter housedress. Yes, I'm taking on another 1940's Simplicity pattern. I will definitely be pre-measuring this time!
And I'm still knitting on that second sweater vest. Sigh.
